Sprouting kit consisting of 2 small sprouting colanders with covers plus one large 4L colander with cover along with 250ml of bio-activated organic nutrients + Storage options(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip). Ideal for those people that eat a lot of sprouts as you can wait until the 2 small ones are full or three quarters full and then add them to the large one which you store in the fridge, after a few more days of cleaning and rinsing, and then start the process again in the small ones while eating from the large one, again so you have a constant supply. Click to hide.

There are 2 ways to secure the clear cover to the colander. In this picture we show the clip being used, I use the clip during the sprouting process and the silicon plug when I store it in the fridge. The advantage of the clip is that if you align it with the base where the hole in the handle is situated the inner grill is slightly elevated allowing the perfect amount of air to flow underneath and then up through the sprouts and out through the holes in the cover. It can also be aligned the other way and in that case it will sit flat due to the indentation in the base of the colander at the other end.
In the picture you see it set at an angle, I use this feature to let it sit for 5 minutes after I have done the rinse and soak procedure as it accelerates drainage at this angle and then return it to the aforementioned position. Click to hide.

Here we see a full small colander of Fenugreek sprouts, at this stage they are transferred to the larger colander, because they are a large sprout they will three quarters fill the large colander within 3 days and the leaves will have become green. Click to hide.

Fenugreek seed husks are washed over the edge, it's important with Fenugreek to get rid of the husk, as it has a slightly slimy coating which reduces the ability to store the sprouts for any length of time unless they are removed. 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.

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

Close up of Alfalfa, Broccoli, Radish, Kale , Fenugreek, Red Clover, loose sprouting mix ready to eat. Grown 1st in one, then 2 small colanders and then transferred to a large 4 L colander. You can see how clean they are i.e. no husks as they have been washed away in the sprouting process. 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 3 small 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 & Power Packs for the lights). This extra light without heat accelerates the greening process. Click to hide.

This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. If it is leafy greens like sprouts then it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, the reason for this is that any damp material will not stick to the cotton bag (meaning you do not have to wash the cotton bag every time you change it). So the simple procedure is put the sprouts and or leafy greens inside the mesh bag, zip it up, place inside the cotton bag, then place inside a plastic bag that doesn't have any holes in it, gently squeeze the air out and secure with the clip.
The trick is to make sure that the sprouts or leafy greens or your entire salad mix is not too wet. To achieve this with the sprouts I leave them at a 45° angle with no cover for half a day then I remove any water in the base and turn the sprouts upside down and leave for another half a day. Because we’ve been soaking these once-a-day in the nutrient solution the sprouts are full of moisture, and it is only the outside edges that are drying, so after adding to the mesh bag, cotton bag, plastic bag, each day I just swap the cotton bag and turn the plastic bag inside out. Actually, I normally mix my sprouts (after the drying process above) with my microgreens once per week giving me enough salad for the week and I change the cotton bag, invert the plastic bag, daily as above, this habit stops me leaving them for too long and the cotton bag becoming mouldy. This is the reason we supply 2 cotton bags with the kit. Click to hide.

This picture shows the parts you get with with our vegetable storage system for keeping your sprouts/leafy greens/general vegetables fresh in the fridge. The reason for the 2 cotton bags is to make it easy to swap them over, which you need to do on a regular basis if your vegetable item is producing too much moisture and the inside of the plastic bag has a lot of condensation on it.

Sprout Colander Kit x1 Lg. + x2 Sm.

$86.00$98.00 GST inc.

Sprouting kit consisting of 1 large colander with cover and 2 small colanders with covers + Storage option(2 X cotton bags, mesh bag, plastic bag clip) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection.

Clear
SKU: Sprout Cover Sm-1-2 Category: Tag:

Product Info...

This kit is what I use, you start sprouts in one small colander after 3 or 4 days divide into 2 small colanders, after another 2 days empty into the large colander for final rinsing and cleaning.

When it comes to storage you have the option of storing it inside the mesh bag inside the large colander (making sure you cover the drain holes on the side of the base), the limiting factor with this method is the amount of room that you have in your fridge as the large colander is 4L – dimensions (330L x 290W x 140H). The way that I now do it is using the combination of mesh bag, cotton bag, plastic bag. The trick being with this method is to make sure the sprouts are not too wet, so for the last 2 days you leave the sprouts at an angle in the large colander, this works really well all you have to do is place the grill section with the sprouts at an angle and across the base. After one day take the sprouts and turn them upside down so that the moisture at the bottom gets a chance to try out for the final day. You may also wish to add the lid during the night just to ensure there are no unwanted visitors to your sprouts during the evening.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag

Sprouting kit 1 large colander with cover + Storage options(2 x cotton bags, 2 x mesh bags, plastic bag clip ) for the early stage of sprouting (instead of the small colanders) +250 ml of bio-activated nutrients for sprouting with seed selection. So the idea with this kit is you use 1 of the mesh bags to grow your sprouts for the 1st say 4 days, you then empty them into the large colander for the final stages of cleaning (removal of husk) and greening. When the sprouts are ready you stop soaking and draining them and leave them to dry for a couple of days and then store them in the other mesh bag inside the cotton bag inside a plastic bag. You can then start sprouting again in your other mesh bag or if you have another spare colander you can begin this process earlier. This saves you the cost of extra small colanders with covers but not quite as convenient in my opinion. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.

Sprout Kit Lg. x 1 + Sprout Bag
Sprout Kit Lg. Mung

Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using 1 large 4 L colander +2 KG of pebbles to weigh the sprouts +1 KG of Mung bean and bio-activated super organic nutrients.
Growing the mung bean in the long white format. This can be done by putting it in a space that restricts its growth or similarly, as we have done here, placing a weight on top of the sprouts, along with the tea towel this serves the purpose of also keeping the light out i.e. so the leaf development is restricted.
We give you the option of purchasing this kit with or without the cover, if you are just doing mung beans then you do not need the cover, however if you want to use it to do normal sprouts then you can sprout the seeds in the mesh bag for say 3 – 4 days, and then empty them into the large colander and proceed with the sprouting process from there, in this case you will need the cover.
We also supply you with our sprouts/vegetable storage system this allows you to store your sprouts in the fridge for well over a week. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.
