Cultivation Advice SPROUTING ALFALFA (standard)

  • Soak seeds for the 8-12  hours in warm water. Drain off the water, rinse and empty the seeds into your sprouter if you have one or any tray / container.
  • Set anywhere – in low light and at room temperature (70° is optimal).
  • Rinse and drain every 12 hours for 2-5 days depending on required sprout size.
  • When you rinse try not to disturb the seeds/sprouts. They need to stay where they are – to form a mass that is unmovable.
  • When ready, transfer your sprout crop to a plastic bag or the sealed container of your choice and refrigerator.
  • The sprouts are best fresh, but will store for up to 5 days if dry.
