Rinsing sprouts

MOIST SPROUTS ARE HAPPY SPROUTS

The main feature of sprout cultivation is that your sprouts
are kept constantly moist, but not directly wet.
This balance is quite easy to obtain.
 

SPROUTS WITHOUT SOIL

Out in the wild the soil provide the moisture for plants.
But sprouts are cultivated without soil. This is called
aeroponisk plant cultivation or aeroponic plants.
 
The interesting thing is that plants at the sprout stage do
not need soil to thrive. Sprouts get their nutrients from
the seed and you can achieve the soil's ability to keep
the plants moist simply by rinsing the sprouts every day.
 

RINSE EVERY DAY

Most sprouters
- BergsBioSalad and Sprout Jars -
makes it easy to obtain the moisture balance simply
by rinsing the sprouts with fresh tap water 2 times daily.
 
In warm weather, the seedlings need to be rinsed more
often to keep the moist because the heat causes the
water to evaporate faster.
 
If you use a clay sprouter or an open container
you may also rinse more often to keep the sprouts
a little moist at all times as dry sprouts wither.
 

STILL WATER

Sprouts thrive on high humidity but on the other hand
they will go bad if their roots stand in stagnant water or
if the sprouts grow too close so the moisture is caught
between the stems.
 
Sprout roots may stand in water if you forget to drip excess
water from the sprout jar or if you forget to empty the
bottom water tray after each rinse.
 
Sprouts can grow too close, if you have poured too many
seeds in the sprouter or if the sprouter is to small for tall
growing sprouts.
 

THE RIGHT MOISTURE BALANCE

You can tell when moisture balance in the sproter is
optimal simply by looking at the sprouts.
The balance is ideal if:
 
The sprouts grow steadily
The sprouts smells fresh  
The roots are white          
The leaves are fresh        
The sprouts are crisp       
 
When you follow the tips described in this guide, you will
discover, it is easy to achieve the right moisture balance.
