How often your seeds should be watered. Rinsing thoroughly và then draining as much water as possible are key components to lớn growing great sprouts.
The time it takes khổng lồ grow a finished Sprout, or other crop (Micro-Greens, Grass, Greens) from a dry Seed. Note: This "finished" Sprout is our preference. You may grow them for as long as you want! In fact, we suggest that you taste them at every rinse to discover when you like them best.
The amount of Sprouts, Grass, Greens or Micro-Greens produced by 1 unit of Seed. For Example 2:1 means that 1 pound of Seed will produce 2 pounds of Sprouts or whatever crop you are growing. You do not have lớn grow them all at once of course, unless you wish to lớn =:-D

Soak 1/3 to lớn 1 cup of beans in cool water for 8-12 hours.

Drain off soak water.

Rinse thoroughly.

Rinse và Drain with cool water every 8-12 hours.

Bean Sprouts don"t need light. Keep your Sprouter in a low light location.

Harvest on day 2 or 3, when most of the beans have short roots. Refrigerateyour crop.

Mung Beans can be grown bigger. See our Detailed Instructions to learn how


Mung Beans will pale as they swell with water. Before you over your soak, check them: If you see that on a lot of your beans, part of the bean (one end usually) is still as dark as it was before soaking, they may need a little more time to soak - khổng lồ make sure they have taken up all the water they need. This is difficult to explain, but I will of course try. If that dark green is no more than 20% of the seed, consider it fully soaked. The seeds continue lớn take up water even after soaking, so they"ll be fine. If more of the seed than 20% is still dark green, drain the soak water and showroom fresh water. Soak for a few hours more and kiểm tra them. You"ll be done soaking when the seeds are at least 80% pale. Of course, if you got your seed from us, we will tell you here if you need khổng lồ soak them for more than 12 hours. We haven"t had a lot of Mungs that required such special treatment since the last millenium, so don"t sweat it - if you are using Mung Beans.

In any case, we soak Mung Beans for 12 hours.If we are in a hurry we"ll use warmer water - 80-90° is a good starting point if you want to lớn experiment with shorter soak periods, but be careful not lớn go too hot - that can cook your seeds in which case they will never sprout.

Hard Seeds

Mung Beans also tend to have hard seeds once in awhile. If you buy your seed from us this is not much of a concern, but these are beans after all, so it is always good to check for hard seeds - as well as rocks (hey, these grow on farms! Dirt Happens!). If you buy Mung Beans or other seeds elsewhere be sure to lớn examine them after soaking khổng lồ make sure there are no hard seeds (seeds that are as hard after soaking as before) . If there are - throw those (the hard ones) out (or better yet, compost them)! Hard Seeds are easy to lớn spot as they are smaller than those that are swollen with water, as we detailed above.

Big & Thick Mung Beans - Growing With Gas

We are still working on this, so the details will not be here until we have firm conclusions. When we do, they will replace this text:Our tests lớn date seem to lớn validate the theory......Here"s the theory. It runs counter khổng lồ our rap on Air Circulation, but hey, there are always exceptions to any rule, right?Fruit off-gasses as it ripens. The gas is ethylene. Ethylene is a gas used in commercial Mung Bean production. Ethylene gas seems lớn promote the root growth of Mung Beans.We use a large paper bag - from a grocery store. Allowing space for the Sprouter, we put in the bag; bananas and apples. We use organic fruit.We will be experimenting with other fruits khổng lồ determine which work best.Here are fruits that emit ethylene gas: Apples, Apricots, Avocados, Bananas, Cantaloupe, Honeydew, Kiwi fruit, Mangos, Nectarines, Papayas, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Tomatoes. We don"t know yet whether there are more, nor which produce the most gas.We work on this as time allows. Here is the rest of what you need lớn know if you want to experiment yourself:We use the exact same technique we detail in our Sprouting Instructions (above), though we are still trying to lớn determine if applying weight khổng lồ the growing sprouts is necessary. We are trying khổng lồ grow in an Easy Sprout with a second Easy Sprout, partially filled with water as a weight. Our alternative method is to grow in a standard Easy Sprout with no weight applied to the seeds/sprouts.Isn"t education grand?:~)Ironically we sell a hàng hóa which helps keep sprouts & other vegetables & fruits fresh longer. Our Produce Storage Bags vì chưng so by allowing the ethylene gas lớn escape the bag. Perhaps we should try using them in our tests. Hmmm.

De-Hulling Mung Bean Sprouts

We vày not try lớn remove the hulls of Mung Bean sprouts. They are thin, inoffensive, have no noticeable affect on shelf life, & they add color. The hulls are very difficult khổng lồ remove, so we advise leaving them in your crop. We"ve eaten these hulls for 2 decades. They"re swell. For those who want khổng lồ know why store bought mungs often have no hulls - the answer is that commercial growers have big de-hulling machines that agitate the sprouts as they pass through a trough filled with moving water. It"s a very elaborate process with no home version - at least not one we"ve figured out to date. As we lượt thích the hulls, we probably never will find a trang chủ solution, so enjoy your crop - hulls and all. Happy Sprouting!
