is where your sprouts do their growing. We use a counter top - right
in the middle of our kitchen. We don't mind the diffuse sunlight or
the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not
matter much. A plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has
leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your

Fenugreek is a sprout we prefer NOT to green. We like them small.
When we eat them they generally don't even have leaves, but when we
do grow them to the leaf stage, we prefer them yellow , so we stop as
on day 3 or 4 or at the latest, as soon as they have leaves.
always, we suggest that you taste your crop at EVERY Rinse - find out
for yourself when you like them best!

sprouts will be done during day 4, 5 or 6.
majority of sprouts will have open leaves which will be green if you
exposed them to light.
sprouts are done 8-12 hours after your final rinse. After the final
Rinse we need to Drain very thoroughly and let our sprouts dry a bit.
If we minimize the surface moisture of our sprouts they store much
better in refrigeration, so we let them sit for 8-12 hours....
can use a salad spinner to dry the sprouts after their final Rinse
and skip the final 8-12 hour wait, instead going directly to
the sprout crop to a plastic bag or the sealed container of your
seeds yield approximately 5:1, so in theory you can start with as
much as 1/5 as much dry seed as your Sprouter has capacity (though we
advise less so that you have some room to move).
