Planting wheatgrass is easy to do, really. You don't need to have a big field or complex tools to grow them. What you will need are just plastic trays, water, and tender loving care.
First, I filled the tray with wheatberries. I made sure that there is only 1 layer of wheatberries and each grain touches the floor of the plastic tray. Then, I added water which is only enough to cover the grains. I let them soak for 24 hours. In 12 hours, the wheatberries became bigger. By the time the water dries up, sprouts have appeared.
After that, I transferred the soaked wheatberries to this improvised wheatgrass planting tray that I made. It's just cake tray that I bought from the supermarket. I bore holes on it using a soldering iron, hehehe.
Then, I positioned the tray with the holes on top of another one that has water in it. Again, the water level is just enough to touch the roots/sprouts to facilitate growth. If you're familiar with hydroponics, you'll understand the set-up. I let the trays stay indoors although I also bring them out every other day. Molds may also develop especially in grains that do not sprout.
Harvest time is between 10-12 days. It's that quick and easy to grow! Hope you can try growing wheatgrass because buying wheatgrass juice and supplements are so expensive.
