Germinate the Wheatgrass Seeds before Planting
Germinate the wheatgrass seeds is the most important step in this planting. Even though the germination process is important but the process is very straight forward and simple.
There are 2 packs of wheatgrass seeds. Pour all the wheatgrass seeds from 1 pack and soak in a cup of water for 24 hours. After 24hours of soaking, the seeds are actually swelling and you could even observe some budding phenomenon.
Plant the Wheatgrass
After 1 day soaks on the wheatgrass seeds, I start the planting stage.
- Pour half of the planting soil on the tray given.
- Sprout the germinated wheatgrass seed on the planting soil.
- Spray some water on the soil so that the soil is wetted.
- Put the entire tray into the courier service bag. This is the most important stage during the sprouting process.
- Take out the sprouting tray on daily basis for adding some water.
- The root grows after 2nd days.
- 4th days onward, you could see the leaf growth.
- Start harvest on 7th day.
The entire wheatgrass planting process is interesting. I could observe the wheatgrass stage change throughout the planting process. With the simple seed germination and sprouting, I could be reward with the healthy and organic wheatgrass leaf.
Blend the organic wheatgrass leaf. Mixed with honey and lemon juice, some ice or carbohydrate water, definitely worth for Sunday family drink. Plant wheatgrass is very simple, especially with the combo kit set.
