- SoakNoThe amount of time your seeds should soak in cool water. Soaking is how we begin the sprouting process in most cases.
- Rinse / DrainNoHow often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly and then draining as much water as possible are key components to growing great sprouts.
- PlantDay 1Approximate time you will plant your crop if growing Grass, Greens, or Micro-Greens, after soaking your seeds. If your seeds do not soak they will get planted right off the bat.
- Harvest11-21 daysThe time it takes to grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. you may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.

My crop did start slow and germinated at different speeds. In the end I got a beautiful batch. I did have to read and re-read the instructions, but now I know how to grow. I've grown several crops successfully thanks to sprout people. I still like arugula most but these are so pretty.
I haven't been impressed with this seed. While SproutPeople offers great customer service and describes the seed as being organic (but not certified, for paperwork/business reasons), they sold it previously as Bull's Blood, but it doesn't develop the same color as Bull's Blood from another of my suppliers, in a side-by-side test. I appreciate that SproutPeople have taken the "Bull's Blood" term off of this listing. For the home grower, this may be just fine seed, but for someone supplying chefs with colorful beet shoots that are more red than green, I need a better grade of seed.
Lucy Luke must be confused or an ancient dinosaur. Disappointed by lack of information is absolute bullsh*t! I am still chuckling by that statement. Couldn't read the rest, I just had to correct this individual! There is almost too much information on sprouting. These beets are a new addition to their vast variety of seeds. Cheap, organic, non-GMO, and a very high germination rate. Lucy Luke clearly has experience, so you would think he would be able to grow something as simple as beets.
Experienced sparse growth. This is a first try with beets. I split a purchase with a friend, both of us had the same result. She uses both sprout master and a name brand automatic misting system. Mostly I am Disappointed that while searching this site for information on how to grow instructions, I went round and around only getting more stuff to buy. I have the stuff, I just want support information, tips, or information which will help achieve better results, so that it is worth buying more seed.
Sproutpeople Response: You have got to be kidding! That you say "Mostly I am Disappointed that while searching this site for information on how to grow instructions" speaks volumes. We have hundreds of pages of detailed growing instructions. We have been teaching people to sprout online since 1996. If you had clicked the big link - on the same page you left your review - you would have been looking right at the specific instructions you need:: https://sproutpeople.org/growing-beet-micro-greens/
Growing and Greening
Beets are unusual. What you are planting is actually a pod with multiple seeds in it.
I cover the crop once planted atop my thoroughly moist medium and leave it alone for 4-5 days. Do not water during this time.
You will see some germination by day 2 or 3. Keep your crop covered for another day or two, until you see more germination.
Beets germinate very unevenly. You will wonder for another week if your crop will work out. Fear not. It will end up relatively even in height and most of the pods will have grown shoots.
When some of your plants grow up and begin to shed their hulls they are ready for light so move them (if necessary) to a well lighted location. If you go with sunlight - water more frequently. Room light will usually do quite nicely - and will not dry out your medium as quickly. If you are using my medium (as described above and in the pictures of the crop day-by-day) you still won't have to water much.
Keep the medium moist by watering when needed. Water from the side if possible to prevent injuring the tiny plants. I often do not water at all. I decide whether to - and when to water by feeling the weight of the crop. Since most of the weight is the water in the medium, it is obvious when it is dry as it will weigh much less. Of course there is also the strength of the plants. If you see wilting, water.
