Wheatgrass Juicer Wheatgrass Kit Wheatgrass Tray
Grow fresh and nutrient packed greens inside the house! Now any room with some natural light (avoid direct sunlight) can produce food! We have been successfully growing in a garage during the coldest and shortest days of winter.
This well designed electrical appliance is especially beneficial to extend the eating of fresh greens during the hot humid summers in the subtropical and tropical zones and during cold wintery conditions of the southern states. Great for renters, people who work long days, children, vegans, vegetarian pet owners, bird fanciers and anyone who would rather eat their nutrients than buy 'nutritional supplements'. The units can be stacked 5 - 6 tall for very keen sprouters or small commercial growers (restaurants / café / tuck shop).
The Easy Green automatic sprouter will: soak, rinse, mist, oxygenate and drain through the full seed to sprout growth cycle. It can hold 5 cartridge-style sprouting trays (supplied) 320 x 60 mm, which allows for tasty and nutritious sprouts throughout the week. Or use the large tray (390 x 330 mm) for a bigger quantity of grasses (wheat, oat, barley).
No soil is required so growing and harvesting sprouts and micro greens is super easy. No pre-soaking of seed is necessary, so you get your sprouts sooner (15 - 40% quicker). The 5L reservoir holds enough water for 2 days. Water is misted onto the seed or young sprouts at regular intervals by using the timer supplied. This misting helps to avoid mould and rotting, produces a faster crop and supplies abundant amounts of oxygen to the vibrantly growing sprouts. Supplied with a 1m drainage tube the water is used only once ensuring a clean supply of water is used for each misting cycle. The unit is self-cleaning with the addition of bleach or hydrogen peroxide.
With a total 'footprint' of 580 mm deep x 430 mm wide x 200 mm high, this will be your most productive, least maintenance required, food-producing area of your property. Please measure and consider your location for this 6kg unit, as it is a large kitchen appliance. Instructions and references to manufacturers’ international website are supplied. Spare parts are available.
With these 'half length' cartridges you can now grow up to 10 types of fresh sprouts at the same time and or stagger your harvest over a longer period. As 2 'junior' cartridges fit inside the standard cartridge supplied with the unit, you can focus on the type of sprout each family member prefers or have just the right amount for a garnish for a special meal or try growing fresh greens to add to your home juicing.
I have been using the Auto sprouter and cannot believe how easy, super productive and nutritious the sprouts are compared to subtropical gardening.
How all this relates to the hot, humid tropics is like a lot of your garden, you have to experiment and find what works for you. However, a great feature is that the timer is adjustable, so in hot conditions, you can mist the seeds more often. This keeps them cooler and fresher by which I mean the rapid growth which the heat encourages is matched with clean water which aids in seed respiration (the mist is highly oxygenated and the flushing of the water washes out waste products of the metabolic process. So you can set the timer to control the amount of water delivered as a mist across the seed trays. Having said this, selection of seed types is still critical, but like the garden, personal experience is the best knowledge and I will admit to some slimy seed batches which, after 5 days, I have thrown out, washed the tray and tried another type. In the garden most people would wait a few weeks to retry and sometimes you have to wait months to get the crop. So again the sprouter is easier than the garden.
For extremely high temperatures it is unlikely that any seed will germinate. At this time of year you will need to rely on the hardy Tropical greens planted from seed or cutting months before.

It can juice all types of fruit and vegetables including leafy greens such as herbs and wheatgrass.
