SOIL & FERTILIZERS
Alfalfa is one of the cleanest and most hygienic sprouting seeds, only requiring 2-3 daily rinses while keeping sprouts protected from light. Rinse thoroughly with cold water to keep sprouts free of organic decomposition and metabolic waste from sprouting. Although seeding rate may seem light, alfalfa sprouts will expand in about 6 days, quickly filling the tray or jar to capacity. In the final 12-24 hours of sprouting, allow alfalfa lighting to develop green chlorophyll. Sprouts may grow entirely in the dark for sweeter, white alfalfa sprouts.
