The PLASTIC is heat sensitive. When there is a slight
mineral deposit on the bottom part, it may be cleaned very
easily using a USED green pad (they are rectangles) that
is sold for pot cleaning. Make sure that it has been well used
and is now soft, as a new one will leave scratches.
Please be advised that nature wants to ensure survival during
a drought and for that reason there will occasionally be a seed
that will not sprout as quickly as the others and if eaten can
be rough on the teeth.
Warmth will make anything sprout a little faster, however
organisms also like this environment, so common sense should be
used. The more warmth, the more frequently the water should be
"A seed sleeps until it sprouts"
An added advantage to this sprouter: Two different seeds or
beans may be sprouted at the same time, without too much effort
in keeping them separate, (one on each side of the screen). You
may harvest each one at the time that it matures.
Water is VERY important for our health. If we do not drink
much water, we MUST include it in our diets juicy food. The best
choices are fruits, vegetables, and sprouts and greens.
ANY seeds or beans
placed on the mesh over the water will look for the water by
germinating into the water through the mesh. This is natural for
the roots to reach into the water.
When the seed or bean starts to gain nutrients from the minerals
in the water it effects the appearance (color) of the plant.
Refrigerating the sprouts slow their growth. .When storing ANY
type of sprout (store bought) in the refrigerator, it is
important to rinse them daily to keep them fresh. The
nutritional value is still increasing.
