Sprouting at home is an easy and great way to get your greens for just pennies a day.    Sprouting is fairly inexpensive and provides large yields of nutritious food while only using a small footprint to grow them in.   We remember our first little sprout farm made of mason jars and mesh lids.   These worked great as long as we could keep them from going moldy.   Many people still use mason jars for growing sprouts without exploring different options.  Options that can help with mold issues by allowing better airflow.    We have been using Hemp Sprout Bags for years and have had nothing but great results.


Sproutman’s Hemp Sprout Bags are amazing.   You can sprout any seeds that you would typically sprout in a jar but the results are way better with no mold.   Hemp is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal by nature and the material allows air to flow around the seeds to help prevent mold.   Steve Meyerowitz, aka The Sproutman, says “People often assume sprouts are best grown in jars. NOT! After guiding tens of thousands of sprouters over the years and all over the world, I can tell you that jars are the number #1 cause of most people’s sprouting and mold problems. Let’s face it, jars were never intended to be a gardening tool. And although some “green thumb” types can have success, it is limited only to a few basic varieties. You need a garden of greens not a headache. And that’s easy as long as you use the right tools.”  Hence Sproutman’s® Sprout Bag.

So how does it work.   Just follow these easy steps:

  1. Soak your seeds in pure water overnight.
  2. Pour soaked seeds into sterilized bag.
  3. Rinse twice per day by immersing in pure water.

Depending on the seeds you should get a great yield in 2-7 days.  Check out some of the pictures below.

The greatest part is that they are washable, reusable and inexpensive.  We’ve had ours for over 5 years and they still work like new.   They come with instructions inside the bag and they are simple to use.   Grab one from www.upayanaturals.com and let us know what you think.
