Vertical Sprouting or Micro-greens- (Snow
Pea, Radish, Sunflower, Wheat Grass, Barley Grass,
Field Pea, Cress, Mustard, Broccoli), this is where the seeds are grown like a seedling
& you just eat the green leaf, this is where you get your mega-doses
of Chlorophyll from. The most well-known example of this
method is Wheatgrass, where you squeeze it and drink the juice, the most
abundant source of green leaves in a sprout is Snowpea(2wks). We use shallow
trays, both rectangular or round, 30mm deep and come with germination covers
and internal grills (which greatly simplify watering).
To simplify your choice of sprouting container we
have divided them up into different categories according to the tray types,
functionally they are very similar.
1. Green rectangular tray white grill – 210Wx350Lmm.
2. Terracotta coloured rectangular trays with clear Perspex grill – 170Wx(380/475/575Lmm).
3. Black round trays with
clear Perspex grill – 235Dmm.

The Vertical Sprouting kits include coconut fibre (finely cut & washed a
completely natural organic substance with a very loose texture allowing easy
penetration of all types of micro green root types, much better & cheaper
than synthetic pads that are now being promoted, you can use these synthetic
pads if you like just purchase a role and cut to size however if you want to do
it this way we would suggest you just use paper towels as it is a lot cheaper
just as good and biodegradable), there is a grill insert which
goes into the rectangular trays, it has 2 functions.
1. It creates a miniature self-watering pot, where you
have a very thin layer of coconut fibre or fibre mat.
2. You can use the larger seeds eg Snowpea without
using any coconut fibre, when using this method you sprout the seeds in the
colander for several days until the roots have become about 15mm long and then
they go directly through the slots into the nutrient below.
the past, the biggest problem with growing things indoors is that you’re
dealing with organic material which also attracts insects, we now include with
all of our kits Mycorrhizal Fungi + beneficial bacteria that also kill
the larvae of insects, this collection of natural organisms has 2 principal
1. A collection of different types of fungi including
mycorrhizal and a range of beneficial bacteria that promote root growth and the
assimilation of nutrients from the growing medium e.g. soil coco fibre or
2. A collection of different type of bacteria
specifically chosen for their ability to destroy the larvae of many
insects that lay their eggs in the soil or in the water/nutrient supply.
Probably the most important breakthrough is the ability to stop fungal gnats,
this is of particular importance to the indoor garden not only do the larvae
eat the new growing root tips, when they emerge and fly around they can become
a nuisance. Fungi & Bacteria for Insect
Control & Plant Roots
Some of the kits already come with a stand as part
of the kit otherwise you can purchase one of 3 types of stands, these are very
useful if you have limited space also all the stands can be fitted with low
power LED lights if your desired growing space does not have enough light.
The sprouting systems come with Pre-mixed Bio-active nutrients, made
of - Probiotics, Seaweed, concentrated Worm-Wee (organic nutrients that
have been bio-activated and concentrated using a worm farm, this is an
option), Azomite, Dolomite, Magnesium Chloride ie fermenting makes the
organic nutrients more bio-available to the sprouts and therefore to you, so
you are eating not only a sweeter sprouts but they are many times more
nutritious than a sprout just washed or soaked in water.
Growing your sprouts using these organic components
takes Hippocrates famous
saying "Let food be your medicine and
medicine be your food", to new heights, giving
you the richest vitamin and mineral
supplement & more importantly the most easily absorbed, you could
ever wish for.
