SPROUTS ON COTTON
AN EASY WAY TO GROW SPROUTS
It is easy for children and adults to grow organic sprouts on cotton.
It only takes 6 days and you can eat the cultivated sprouts in the end.
1 handful organic cotton
1 tsp organic sprouting seeds
1 small porcelain plate
Put 4 mm high organic cotton on a small plate
in an even layer. The cotton must be organic
so it does not contain any bleach chemicals.
Add cool water to the cotton till it is wet. The
cotton should only be this wet the first 8 - 12
hours because the seeds need to initially
soak to start the sprouting.
Pour the organic sprouting seeds on to the wet
cotton. The seeds chould be in one layer and
only just touch each other. This gives them
room to grow.
Place the plate on the kitchen table out
of the sun. A shady corner close to the
sink is best. Here you will remember to
give the sprouts a little water 2 times
The cotton should always b a little moist
but not directly wet during the next 6 days,
where your little sprouts will grow bigger
and eventually develop leaves.
When the sprouts are about 10 cm high
and have leaves, you can cut them off
1 cm above the cotton and eat them.

be cultivated on organic cotton.

seeds form gel when they are moist. Due to
this gelling seeds cannot be cultivated in an
