Instructions for Growing Everything

This page is here to give you another way to get to the core of Sproutpeople - our Detailed Pages.
Every seed and mix we offer (and some we don't) has such a page. They contain thorough growing instructions, videos, recipes, and much more. If you haven't seen those pages you haven't seen our site. We don't want that (I (Gil) have spent actual years writing this site. I NEED you to see those pages =;-), so here are links to get you to them.

Click the name of the seed or mix you want to grow to go to its detail page.
Click the name of a Sprouter to go to its detail page.

You can get to these same pages by using our menu bar and navigating through our links, but for those of you who like a list - here you go. Unlike much of our site, this page is alphabetically organized.

The Basics of Sprouting:

  • Seed Storage: Keeping your dormant seeds happy.
  • Soaking: Turning a dormant seed into a nutritional powerhouse.
  • Rinsing: Water is the key ingredient in sprouts. Use it liberally.
  • Draining: It is essential that sprouts be drained thoroughly after rinsing. Sitting in a puddle is the most common cause of crop failure.
  • Air Circulation: If your sprouts can’t breathe while growing - they can die. Don’t put them in a closed cabinet.
  • Greening: Photosynthesis is cool, and so is Chlorophyll, but not all sprouts are into it, nor is it necessary. Sprouts of all colors are packed with flavor and nutrition!
  • Cleanliness: Your seed should be clean and your sprouting device should be sterile. Wash your sprouter well between crops. Sterilize when necessary.
  • Storage: Properly stored, fresh sprouts will keep for up to 6 weeks in your refrigerator but fresher is better. Never refrigerate wet sprouts.
  • Eat More Sprouts! Grow More Often!
