Wheatgrass Org. Au (Demeter). Here showing growing in 1 of our rectangular trays where the inner grill section which holds the growing medium and wheatgrass is elevated above the water reservoir below. The trick with limiting mould, which is the largest problem with growing wheatgrass, is to keep the seed husk dry. So this configuration allows the roots to extend into a thin layer of water but the top layer of growing medium remains dry. Click to hide
Wheat seed - the covering of white powder that you see on top of the seeds is what we add to reduce the possibility of the seeds becoming infested with weevils, this can be a common problem with organic wheat seed which is not sprayed with chemicals to reduce this problem. The white powder is Diatomaceous Earth, this is crushed prehistoric shell powder, apart from being rich in silica and other trace elements it also has razor sharp edges at a microscopic level which destroys weevils if they try to walk through it.

Growing Wheat Grass, this is the process that I use, firstly in the top left you see where I have pre-germinated the wheat for 1 or 2 days, i.e soaking overnight in probiotic nutrients to begin with then rinsing clean, allow to drain for a day and then soaking again in probiotic nutrients for half an hour the next day rinsing clean leaving to drain for another day then spreading it on the growing medium. What this does is cut down the time that the seed is laying stationary in a moist environment with the possibility of developing mould. After spreading the seed on the growing medium gently press the seed into the growing medium and give a strong spray. When the roots have penetrated the growing medium and into the reservoir below then add the lifters on the side which will create an air gap allowing the top layer of seed and growing medium to remain dry while the bottom tips of the roots contact the nutrient solution.

Growing Wheatgrass Method Using Paper Towel, this is the same procedure as mentioned in the previous slide, the only difference is it is harder to keep the paper towel free of moisture so mould is more likely to develop, the trick here is just to keep an eye on it and if there is a sign of mould just cover the mould with a layer of dolomite (dolomite is very alkaline and will retard the development of the mould).

Wheatgrass and Fenugreek, fenugreek is not so good to grow as a Microgreen because the seed husk sticks to the leaf however it is a very powerful cleansing and healing herb, so mixing it with wheatgrass which is what you're going to juice is an excellent way to get the best of both of these herbs. Here shown groaning in our rectangular tray, in this case with the grill using coconut fibre. Click to hide

Organic Wheat (Au) for Wheatgrass sprouting. May contain Diatomaceous Earth (crushed shell powder) to control insects.
Organic wheat has been grown without artificial fertilisers and the seeds have not been sprayed, ideal for growing wheatgrass for juicing, or can be used for making bread etc.
In the picture we see wheatgrass being grown in a rectangular trays with white grill (120 mls), shallow round tray, with or without grill (producing about 40mls of juice) and a shallow rectangular tray, with or without grill (100mls), using a loose, light weight, easily spread coconut fibre with the addition of liquid seaweed. When purchased with one of our growing containers we supply detailed instructions on how to get the best results.
Coco fibre is the cheapest however it does require an extra process where you turn a compressed block into loose spreadable coconut fibre, I tend to now just use the vermiculite, as is basically simpler.
Another time-saving suggestion is rather than doing it every day which can be a bit of a grind if you don’t have the time, is to do 6 or more trays in one go and then reduce them at the one time, at the same time juice a kilo of lemons mix them together and makes ice blocks and start your day with this warm drink.

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 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.

The difference between this kit and the 25 W. kit is that this light is 100W, both lights have no fan, i.e. no noise. Our aim is to allow you to grow as much as possible using the smallest possible space & least amount of power. So this light would come in handy if you want to grow something that requires more power eg, fruiting or bud development. Like the 25W, it comes with a mix of 2 different types of white and 660nm red LEDs. Click to hide.

The kit also comes with a small cover which makes it easier to add the growing medium i.e. stops it falling down through the watering hole, there are also 2 supports that sit underneath the grill to ensure the optimum height of the grill in the tray.
Can be used to grow arrange of microgreens, personally I use a paper towel to cover the grill and then use vermiculite as the growing medium. It can also be used to grow small potted herbs, in this configuration you just add the herb to the grill, flood the grill until the roots penetrate into the reservoir below, at this stage you may need to add some of the nutrient solution to the water in the reservoir.
