I love the convenience and functionality of this. It's got a tiny footprint-- This is a must since I have literally four sq ft of counter space in my apartment's kitchenette. Yet, the four trays will accommodate the growth of more sprouts than I can eat in a week. On the design.. The water drains quickly, usually within 10 minutes. I've had a couple problems with water not draining, although that is probably because the mature sprouts have a root network that tends to hold in water, so it's a problem inherent in how sprouts grow rather than a flaw with the sprouter. At any rate, I've had 0 problems with mold. Some unsprouted seeds may also find their way into the holes. While two or three clogged holes won't impede draining much, they are difficult to get out. A simple solution is to have a floss pick handy, as the pointy end will easily unwedge the stuck seeds.
If you're looking for a cheap, simple way of sprouting sprouts, I highly recommend this. While bulkier than the sprouting cup, it has 4x as much space for sprouts than a sprouting cup. I have not personally tried using the cup, and while one advantage of the cup is that the hulls are easily removed, I'm glad I went with this as I'm sure I would be eating more sprouts with the tray sprouter. Bottom line.. This item might seriously be one of the best inventions in kitchen gardening.
I've sprouted everything in this. I mean EVERYTHING. I bought several of the large packs of seeds from amazon including mixes, and they've all grown magnificently.
The secrets (if they're secret, the instructions are pretty good) is to use ~2-3 teaspoons of seeds, soak small seeds like alfalfa for at least 5 hours, preferably 8, and the larger seeds/beans for at least 8, preferably 12 hours in room temperature water. Place in the tray, rinse and stack them, and I stick a lumped up kitchen towel under one edge to tilt it and dump the water out of the bottom tray half an hour later.
Twice a day I rinse each tray and let the water drain off, then restack rotating the trays each time I rinse, bottom to top.
Keep the top loosely set on top. Not enough room for a fly to get in, but don't seal it either. This allows the system to breathe and prevents too much moisture build up.
Maintain the grown in temps around 65-80 degrees. Too hot and they'll spoil, too cold and they won't sprout.
In 3-5 days you'll have sprouts or they'll at least be well on their way. Rinse out any hulls and non sprouting seeds after a few days because they'll ferment and taste bitter. When they grow thickly together, you can dump the whole mass into your hand or upside down into a clean bowl and rinse a ton of them off, then put the mass back in the tray. Keep rinsing and washing off the hulls.
If you see what looks like white mold on anything, its not mold, its micro roots. They'll 'disappear' when you rinse for the most part.Read more ›
I used to buy supermarket sprouts (clover or alfalfa), but became concerned with the growing food-borne illness cases rising with sprout contamination. My first exposure to sprouting came with the Easy Sprout Sprouter from the Sprout People. However, even with the small seed guard and following the instructions and various tips for sprouting alfalfa and clover seeds, my seeds took 6-8 days+ plus to reach supermarket sprout size. And I found it difficult to get good drainage so my sprout roots would usually brown. Additionally, separating the sprouts, which were small and randomly growing in a heap, from the hulls was a time of dread. I wanted to highlight this first experience so that I could explain why the Victorio 4-tray seed sprouter is more optimized for growing these small seeds.
I stopped sprouting alfalfa and clover and switched to sprouted lentils for a long time. Tail between my legs, I fought investing in yet another sprouter. But, missing my sprouts I took a chance on this item and I am SOOOO glad that I did.
So far I have sprouted alfalfa, clover, radish, mung, broccoli, aduki, lentils, and other mixes from The Sprout House--which are awesome mixes if you're a beginner!
So how do I do it? Well, I soak my seeds overnight (~7-10hr) and dump them into each of the trays the following morning. Twice each day I take the unit (4-stack and bottom) and fill ~2cups of water on the top unit to allow drainage top to bottom. The system is NOT absolutely perfect for draining, so after a few minutes I walk over and tilt the entire unit on a slight angle. The holes are located only around the edges, which is why I feel this is necessary.Read more ›
