4. Type of material you can use to grow the thick mung bean sprouts

let me talk about this for a second that what type of material you can use to grow the bean sprouts.

*
Cheesecloth is great for sprouting. It keeps a certain amount of moisture and it allows the beans to breathe easily.Besides the cheesecloth, reusable kitchen paper will also work. It is not paper material, it’s kind of lượt thích a fabric material & hard to lớn break apart

You cannot use a towel as it will be too thick và won’t be good for sprouting.

You can also vị this process without cheesecloth of course. Just make sure you water them on time. The moisture cấp độ is pretty low without the cheesecloth và if you forget to lớn water it once or twice they could die.Fold the cheesecloth khổng lồ cover the beans.

Make sure khổng lồ discard the water that drains down because bacteria might grow in there.

Older beans take longer to grow, fresh crops would be faster. Make sure this whole mix is not completely sealed. Beans need air to breathe.

We don’t want them lớn see any sunlight or else they will turn màu sắc that brings a bitter taste.I’m going to wrap it with black fabric. Even though it’s black you can still see some light going through. So I will also put this whole thing into a dark room.The best temperature is around 68 degrees Fahrenheit. If it’s too cold it might take a bit longer to grow. If it’s over 85 degrees Fahrenheit the mung beans would likely go bad.
