SPROUTING 101

New to sprouting? 

Here’s a crash course to get you growing your very own sprouts! 

First things first…
what are sprouts? 

Sprouts are baby vegetables at their earliest stage of growth. All plants must go through the sprouting stage. If microgreens are plant toddlers, sprouts are infants.

At this young stage, precious nutrients stored within the seed are fully unlocked to help the little seed grow into a big, strong plant. Each seed is a true treasure trove of nutrition and benefits—and sprouting is the key.

Here’s why sprouts are so amazing. They’re…  

  • One of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet
  • Easy to digest + highly bioavailable 
  • Affordable + super fresh 
  • Environmentally sustainable + supportive 
  • Easy to grow (even in small spaces) 
  • Vibrant + delicious!

How To Get Growing

No green thumb required.
All it takes is a little one, two, three! 

Step 1:
SOAKING

Pour seeds into your preferred grower + soak them in water at room temp. For most seeds, an overnight soak is perfect, 6-8 hours. The most important thing is to avoid over soaking your seeds. Check your variety for specific soaking times.   

Step 2:
GROWING

Once soaked, drain the water. Give your seeds a quick but thorough rinse 2x daily.

Step 3:
HARVESTING

Within a week (depending on the variety), you’re ready to harvest from your kitchen garden! Pop a handful into your mouth + store the rest in the fridge. Your sprouts should stay fresh for about a week!

Meet Your Growers 

Choose the best one for you and your sprouts. 

Sprout Bag

A natural hemp bag with a breathable weave, the Sprout Bag mimics the sprout’s natural environment—dark soil. Hang above your sink to grow almost any sprout!   

Jar

Sprouting in a jar is easy and beautiful, although it takes up more counter space. Grow your sprouts in a glass jar with a mesh lid and keep them slightly inverted to encourage proper drainage and airflow.   

Tray

Tray style growers (like the Turio or the Freshlife 3000) can grow almost any sprout, but are essential for vertical sprouts like sunflower, pea shoots, and wheatgrass. These wide tray growers allow sprouts to grow straight and tall!
