How to Grow Wheatgrass Seeds
Place wheatgrass seeds on a tray with a small amount of water for six to 12 hours. This will encourage them to sprout.
If you don't notice your seeds sprouting, add a small amount of house plant food. This will increase the probability for all of the seeds to sprout.
Fill a tray or container with a 50/50 mix of soil and peat moss. The mix should be thin (1 1/2 to two inches deep).
Sprinkle the sprouted seeds into the container. Make sure the seeds don't overlap.
Cover the sprouted seeds with a thin layer of peat moss and water it. Peat moss is a beautiful covering, and it also provides your seeds with essential nutrients.
Harvest the wheatgrass when it reaches seven inches in height. The grass can be grown outside during the spring, summer and fall.
Tips & Warnings
If you notice mold growing on your wheatgrass, just make sure to cut above the mold when harvesting.
Grow a separate tray of wheatgrass if you have cats.
Try wheatgrass in small doses, because some people become lightheaded.
