Sprouting instructions, this is not the only way to do sprouts, everyone will acquire their own sprouting techniques, but here are the basics:
Set your sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. This is where your sprouts do their growing. A counter top or top of a refrigerator is perfect.
Sprouts don't mind the indirect sunlight or the 150 watts of incandescent light, because light just does not matter much. Your sprouts will never have leaves, and a plant can only perform photosynthesis when it has leaves. Until then light has little if any effect, so don't hide your sprouts. Plus, they like air-circulation.
First, soak seeds for 6-8 hours. Empty water and rinse. Rinse and Drain again in 8 hours. Then inse and Drain every8 hours until the sprouts are the size that you desire.
Most of the seeds will have sprouted tiny (1/16 - 1/4 inch) roots after 2 or 3 days. After 4-6 days, leaves start to emerge.Depending on your climate and the time of year you are sprouting and most importantly your personal preference - You may Rinse and Drain again at 8 hour intervals for up to 6 days. We Do Not recommend doing so, unless you're doing a science experiment. Grow them for as long as you like. As long as you continue to Rinse and drain systematically. If you grow for a week you'll get some plants growing as well as roots. Experiment! Have Fun! It's All Good - if occasionally inedible, lol.
