  Easy Steps
to Grow Wheatgrass in as Little as One Week
Grow wheatgrass with these simple steps. At Wheatgrass Home we know there are so many health benefits from drinking fresh wheatgrass and It's EASY!

1. Purchase a wheatgrass juicer and a home wheatgrass growing kit right here at the Wheatgrass Home store.

2. Once your wheatgrass growing kit and wheatgrass juicer arrive soak 1 cup (125g) of organic wheat grass seed (a.k.a. wheat berry)  for 8-12 hours.

3. Drain seeds and then rinse thoroughly with cold running water three or four times until water runs clear.

4. Place growing compost in tray to even depth of 1-1.5 inches (25-40mm).

5. Distribute sprouted seeds evenly over the soil making sure the seeds aren't smothered by each other but close enough together that you get a good yield of grass.

6. Soak seeds and soil thoroughly with water (ideally with a small watering can) until they begin to sprout.

7. Leave in a dark, shady place (cover with a dark top or place in a dark cupboard) at room temperature 68-86F (20-30ÂșC) for 2-3 days.

8. Then move into a bright area avoiding direct sunlight (a windowsill is a good place).

9. It is important to keep wheatgrass well watered at all times, but not waterlogged.

10. If mold does form on the soil, just harvest above the mold and wash well.

11. Harvest with scissors when wheat grass reaches 6-10inches (7-10 days).

12. Juice using only a slow turning wheatgrass juicer. Blenders and other home juicers don't work as they simply chop and oxidize the grass. Chopped grass cannot be digested.

* You may get another harvest from your seed, however, the second harvest may not be as nutrient rich.

Did you know 2 to 3 small bundles of wheat grass fed through a wheatgrass home juicer will yield one 1oz (30ml) shot which is equivalent to the nutrients found in 2.5lbs of vegetables! This is the recommended daily consumption. Simply add the wheatgrass juice to your favorite fruit juice or here is one popular mixture for a great tasting green drink. Please see our wheatgrass juice recipes for other drink ideas.
