Sprout Growing Guide
Once you have your sprout seeds you probably won’t be using all of the seeds at once. In this case you will want to store your seeds in a cool, dark dry place like a pantry closet. Keep sealed in a plastic bag to protect from moisture. Do not freeze seeds.Soaking:
Soaking your seeds is one of the most skipped and important steps to being successful in sprouting. Sprout seeds should be soaked for 8-12 hours to ensure good soaking. Warm water will shorten the time needed to soak.
Sprouts need to be rinsed 2-3 times every day to ensure adequate moisture levels. To keep water fresh and seeds happy rinsing should be done at least twice a day. Once rinsed allow for adequate drainage so seeds do not sit in water. They should be moist but not sitting in water. Use room temperature water for rinsing.

Sprouts breath while they grow. Keep them on a counter out of direct sunlight. Do not keep a lid on your sprouts. Even keeping a fan circulating air around your sprout trays is helpful.
Keeping your trays clean is important to preventing mildew from showing up. After each use the sprouting trays should be washed thoroughly. Using filtered water is also helpful.
