Cover for Sprouting colander 1.5 L , made from Perspex, comes with 2 connection options, I tend to use the clip while sprouting and the plug when storing in the fridge, or you can use both of the same time, maybe you have a busy fridge and the cover can be easily displaced just with the plug. Click to hide.
Showing the clip in use, the slot in the Perspex allows the clip to lock the cover in place, when placed on the tray so that the flat tabs lineup a small space is created, this allows for air to pass down the sides of the insert and then up through the sprouts and out through the slots. If you turn it around the other way then the clip aligns with the indent in the base tray and will allow the cover to lie perfectly flat e.g. for fridge storage. Of course if you need extra aeration you can just leave it at this tilted position in the larger photo. Click to hide
Sprouting colander 1.5 L showing showing another way of attaching the cover using the clip, increasing the aeration of the sprouts. There are basically 4 different options - small gap, medium gap(shown here), 45° tilt and removing the inner bowl and placing it on a flat plate or in a larger bowl. Click to hide.

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.

Sprouting Kit Parts
Sprouting colander 1.5L here at an angle, to allow better aeration and or drainage, generally held in this position just after rinsing just for 5 or 10 minutes to get rid of excess water. Select the Product Name button to go to that Product Or Click to hide.
The kit consists of 2 cotton bags, one mesh bag, and a clip to seal plastic bags. Can be used to store leafy greens, sprouts, vegetables in general and can also be used as a shopping/carry bag also designed to fold into a small package.
This is the method I now use to store my sprouts and salad greens also other vegetables. Leafy greens & sprouts, it's best to store them 1st in a mesh bag, 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 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.

Sprouting kit 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.

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.
Growing Super Mung bean Sprouts using one 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.
