Here we see Radish(Daikon) sprouts after about 4 days remove the cover, we followed this by a quick spray to remove unwanted husk and force sprouts that have been lifted up back down so the roots can contact the vermiculite. Click to hide.

Cover for Rect. Tray 330x245mm
$14.59 GST inc.
Clear Germination Perspex Cover – fits inside the Rect. Tray 330x245mm.
This clear Perspex Sprout cover, is used as a cover for our smaller Sprouting colanders when doing Loose sprouting.
It comes with 2 x attachment methods.
1- is a plug that pops in & out, the main benefit of using this attachment is that it allows you to rotate the cover, meaning that when you take the colander out of the fridge and wish to very quickly just grab some sprouts, then you can just rotate the cover, take the sprouts out and rotate back without having to lift the cover off and place it someplace else, not a big deal but just a little timesaver if you’re in a hurry.
2- is a metal clip this is precisely designed so that the end part of the clip fits flush with the surface, it tends to further restrict the cover from rotating out of position while in the fridge, although the plug does this to a slightly lesser degree depending on how firmly you attach it. The clip also provides a larger air-gap for air circulation, depending on which end you place it relative to the base.
Or you can use both together this way the cover is not going to move no matter what it bumps against in the fridge.
I tend to just use the plug in the fridge, and the clip when sprouting as it gives just the right amount of airgap especially for the 1st 3 or 4 days.
We have gone to this extra effort because we strongly believe in the functional importance of being able to store your sprouts in the fridge when they are at their peak condition. Because you are soaking your sprouts in bio-activated nutrients for the 6 day growing period, they remain vital and full of life for another 6 days in the fridge, this greatly extends their window of availability for eating, otherwise you have to do lots of little batches and you end up throwing a lot away which ends up being expensive, time-consuming and may cause you to stop sprouting, which is a no-win situation for anybody.
