Sprout Grower Instructions

IMPORTANT: Never pre-soak beans as mold can grow immediately

  • Place 3 heaping tablespoons of mung beans onto the stainless steel screen, spreading evenly. 

  • Rinse beans under a tap.

  • Add enough water to the plastic dish to touch the bottom of the beans (NOTE: Do not cover the beans with water which could cause mold and bacteria to grow). We recommend pure water, but tap water will do.

  • Place the dome cover over the beans loosely which collects the humidity.

  • Approximately 12-15 hours later pour out the green-ish water that collected at the bottom of the tray. 

  • Rinse the beans and replace with clean fresh water (move the beans around on the top of the screen with your fingers just a little. This will stop the growth of the root through the screen which makes cleaning easier). Place the dome cover over the beans once again.

  • Wait 12-15 hours and rinse again (which means you will change water twice before eating them. No need to move the beans around this time).

You are done! You can start eating them when the root is as long as the size of the bean, which is usually in the first 22 to 30 hours.

  • Place sprouts in a tupperware or glass jar with a lid and refrigerate for up to 5 days. The sooner you eat them, the fresher they’ll be. Make sure sprouts aren’t sitting in water in the fridge.

  • Enjoy for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner! 

  • Sprouter Washing Instructions: Hand wash the Sprout Grower between sprouting. Never place in dishwasher.

  • Growing Tips: Mung beans grown in the evening grow faster. Start between 6-8 pm. Using slightly warmer water helps the beans germinate more quickly which will speed up their growth (18-20 hrs).
