How do I grow green beans hydroponically?

With all germinating devices and germination vessels, however, you should make sure that the openings in the containers are not too large for the desired type of sprout. Very small sprouting seeds such as cress are generally not suitable for conventional germination containers, but these small types of sprouts can be grown wonderfully in close-meshed cress sieves. In the description of the corresponding products it is usually indicated which sprouting seeds are suitable.

But no matter which product you choose - whether it's self-made, manual or automatic - the principle of sprout growing is always the same:

The sprouts need air and moisture to germinate. They should therefore be rinsed regularly with fresh water so that they stay moist, but do not lie in the water and do not get moldy. The germination time varies between 2 and 8 days depending on the type of sprouts and personal preferences. If the sprouts stay a little longer in the container, they develop green leaves and become small plants, the so-called "bay greens", which are also edible and very nutritious.

If you too want to benefit from the health benefits of sprouts, try growing the sprouts yourself. Very easy, nutritious and super fresh!

Rules for pulling sprouts

When growing sprouts, two fundamental things can go wrong: Either the sprouts dry up, or they start to ferment or go moldy. However, if you pay attention to the following points, you shouldn't have any problems pulling the bars.

  1. Pay attention to the correct size of the openings or the meshes of the germination container so that the seeds cannot fall through.
  2. Rinse the seedlings regularly and several times a day (at least 3 times) with fresh water.
  3. Keep the seedlings moist, but avoid leaving them in the water.
  4. The best temperature for the seedling is normal room temperature. Make sure it doesn't get too cold or too hot for the sprouts.
  5. Give the seedlings plenty of room to breathe - do not overfill the germination container and make sure there is enough ventilation.

If you consider these things, nothing should stand in the way of successful sprout cultivation - with or without a sprout machine.

A tasty almond germ milk

Allow organically grown almonds to germinate for a few days (as described above) until you can see a white tip at the end of the almond. Remove the tonsil skin. If this does not go easy, briefly pour hot water over the almonds and then let them cool down. The skin should now be easy to remove.

For one part of almonds there are three parts of still water. Mix the almonds and water in a kitchen utensil until an even consistency is achieved. You can also add raw honey or vanilla to customize the taste to suit your personal preference.

Then filter the mixture through a fine sieve or enjoy the delicious unfiltered almond germ milk. Whether freshly chilled or slightly warmed up (not cooked!) - the almond germ milk tastes simply fabulous. Children will love this healthy drink too.
