Ok, here it grows... Tongue out Spend as little as $1 - $2 per week to have your very own wheatgrass juice at home. All you need is a separate wheatgrass juicer. You can grow wheatgrass INDOORS, in a planting tray, flower pot, cup, etc... without mold no matter where you live in the world. I do suggest always growing wheatgrass in soil rather than hydroponically (no soil). Growing indoors or outdoors doesn't change the actual grass itself. Visit our store at the 'STORE' link in the menu. You may order your own "How to Grow" DVD by Michael Bergonzi (updated in 2009) from this website store. The DVD includes how to grow wheatgrass, sunflower, pea greens and buckwheat. (Pea Greens can be grown the same way as wheatgrass!) Separate sprouting DVD will include all different kinds of sprouts (mung beans, whole lentils, fenugreek, alfalfa, broccoli, clover, garbanzo beans, adzuki, quiona, millet, etc...) which are all grown hydroponically, i.e. without soil. If you are in need of more help after watching the DVD, phone consultations can be purchased here or Michael will be happy to answer all your questions via email or from the 'contact us' link in the menu.
To begin, you will need some growing trays... There are the small trays, which are 10"x10" use approx 1 cup (½ pound) of seed and will yield up to 10 ounces of juice. Or there are the large trays, which are 17"x17", use up to 2 cups (one pound) of seed and will yield up to 20 ounces of juice per tray. The large trays should produce almost 2 pounds of wheatgrass. One pound of wheatgrass = approx. 12 ounces of juice when using the Healthy Juicer. Don't forget that you can grow wheatgrass in a flower pot as well, or any other container that will hold some soil in it ... some soil of any kind: potting mix, top soil, potting soil, (FYI: at times, organic compost in a bag may be too acidic and your wheat seeds will not grow as well. Please read in detail about the reason I will always grow wheatgrass on soil, never hydroponically).... and some wheat seeds. *Remember: Seeds to grow in soil (with trays, pots, etc...) are hard winter (or spring) wheat seeds for wheatgrass, small black or black oil sunflower seeds for sunflower greens, snow or speckled pea seeds for pea greens and whole buckwheat (with the shell) for buckwheat lettuce greens. Seeds that you can grow hydroponically are alfalfa, broccoli, clover, radish, garlic, onion, mustard, chia, etc. These will grow into the micro greens. And then you can also sprout and eat adzuki beans, mung beans, whole red or green lentils, fenugreek, garbanzo, etc. **SEE HOW TO SPROUT CHART AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
These are just some hints on growing. Refer to the video for detailed instructions. You can purchase more supplies from the STORE link above (seeds, small & large planting trays, racks and fresh sprouts / grass) to begin growing your own at home.
