How To Grow WheatGrass – Growing Instructions

Cover seed growing tray with a vented or upside down draining growing tray or board to keep the seeds dark until seedlings sprout into light green new wheat grass. Please do not use newspaper as some recommend, newspaper contains ink and other chemicals which may leak in to the growing process.

Notice 3 tier tray configuration; vented tray on top, draining growing tray middle, solid catch tray on bottom.

At this point you may want to add a no drip (solid bottom) growing tray underneath the wheatgrass draining growing tray to catch over watering. Adding this bottom tray properly also adds a second watering system to the roots that almost always grow through the drain holes in the bottom of wheatgrass growing tray.
SPACE BETWEEN TRAYS; the hanging roots from the top tray will need to easily reach the water in the bottom tray. Therefore, make sure your spacer lift height between top and bottom tray is no more than one half inch. The spacer between trays should always be as chemical free as possible. If used out doors only; you may want to drill an overflow In this bottom no drip catch tray at about the one inch high mark to avoid over-watering/soggy conditions. If indoors you may want to leave the bottom tray with NO holes for added protection for your floors or counters from water damage (but be careful not to over water to avoid constant soggy soil conditions).
