This kit consists of one large colander with cover along with a mesh Sprout bag +250ml of bio-activated organic nutrients along with a selection of seeds or not.
The idea here is that you Sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for the 1st 3 or 4 days, and when they are large enough you transfer them to the large colander for the final stage of greening and de-husking and then storage in the fridge. So here you are using a Sprout bag instead of the small colanders, obviously the big advantages is price however it is a little bit more fiddly and cleaning the mesh bag is a bit of a pain. You will also need a bowl that you can rest the mesh bag in with the sprouts so that they can drain, so a bowl with something in it that the mesh bag can sit on e.g. pebbles or an upside down smaller plate or bowl.
Note the limiting factor with this kit is the amount of room that you have in your fridge as the large colander is 4L dimensions (330L x 290W x 140H).

Here we see the steps involved in using this process: – soaking the seeds overnight in bowl/cup with the nutrients supplied (warm water in winter). Rinse clean and allow for one day before soaking again in the nutrient solution for 10 to 20 minutes, rinse clean (open bag and allow tap water to run through the sprouts), when the bag is full, empty them into the large colander and proceed to soak rinse and de-husk for the next 2 or 3 days allowing the sprouts to green up. Click to hide.

Here we see the Fenugreek sprouts, after another day in the large colander they have begun to shed their husk most of these will be washed over the edge just by creating a small wave movement with your hand. Un-sprouted seeds and waterlogged husk, will remain on the bottom and for the last couple of days I recommend you take the bulk of the sprouts from the grill and place them in the base, give the grill a quick rinse getting rid of any un-sprouted or husks that have sunk to the bottom, then placing the grill on top of the base tip it upside down and proceed with your soak and rinse procedure. Click to hide.

Here we see 2 large colanders sitting on the base of a double shelf light stand which has a white Perspex base for this purpose (the base also serves the purpose of hiding the cables for the lights). This extra light without heat accelerates the greening process. Click to hide.

Here we see 1 large colanders sitting on the base of a single shelf light stand which has a white Perspex base for this purpose (the base also serves the purpose of hiding the cables for the lights). This extra light without heat accelerates the greening process. Click to hide.
