Re: growing sprouts


When I've grown sprouts, I cover the seeds with water for the first 8-12 hours. Then dump the water, and afterwards, rinse the
seeds once or twice a day until they're the length I like. Usually 4 or 5 days. I don't let them sit in the water after the first
soaking. Maybe yours just need air.
