Sproutman with his original Sprout Bag, c. 1979.

I invented the fabric sprout bag in 1979 because so many of my customers were having mold problems growing sprouts in traditional jars. Jars are great for canning foods, but they aren’t great for growing sprouts. There just isn’t enough air flow for the sprouts to drain properly. After years of experimenting with different fibers, weaves, and sizes, I perfected the Organic Hemp Sprout Bag you see today. Hemp resists mold and mildew, and is a renewable resource of exceptional versatility. It can be used to make paper, rope, bio-fuel and even food. And, hemp grown for fiber does not contain the psychotropic plant compound found in its famous sister plant – marijuana. Heck, back in the 1700’s many documents in the U.S. were written on paper made from hemp.

Best seeds to grow in your Sproutman’s® Sprout Bag:

Mung beans, lentil, garbanzo, green pea, adzuki, soft white wheat, barley, rye, spelt, Kamut, quinoa, sesame, millet, broccoli, alfalfa, clover, radish, chives, arugula, cress and psyllium. See our complete selection of certified organic sprouting seeds here.

After guiding tens of thousands of kitchen garden enthusiasts over the years and all over the world, we can tell you that jars are the #1 cause of sprouting problems and disappointment. Growing sprouts in jars, without circulation of air and water, can cause mold to grow on the seeds, sporadic growth, and low germination.  You need a garden of greens, not a headache.

Bag size is 7 x 11 inches (dry).
