Introduction: Grow Your Own Wheatgrass

I got the idea to grow my own wheatgrass after buying a cat grass growing kit for my cat. Its pretty easy, grows well indoors and not a lot of supplies are needed.

Wheatgrass is a popular drink in juice bars or sold as powdered supplements at health food stores, but it can be rather expensive; this Instructable shows an easy and inexpensive alternative.

*Proponents of wheat grass make a lot of claims as to its nutritional benefits. Such as:
Wheatgrass is very is nutrient rich: 1lb of wheatgrass =23 lbs. of vegetables** (a great way to get your 3-5 servings of vegetables a day)
its detoxifying , prevents tooth decay
cancer and cardiovascular disease preventive
and is high in phyto nutrients, chlorophyl

I have no intention to promote or refute these claims this instructable will just show you how to grow the stuff.

Step 1: Materials:

Wheat seeds (also called wheatberries)- they can be found at grocery and health food stores or ordered online (I use Mumm's organic hard red winter wheat ordered *online cost ~$6 for 1kg(2,2lb)) can also use spring wheat

*http://www.sprouting.com/

Growing tray with drainage holes- (I use an 8X4inch tray I got from a cat grass kit), you can get greenhouse trays from gardening shops, cafeteria trays, those plastic microwave diner containers, seedling containers (its better if it isn't very deep so you don't need as much soil to fill it)

soil, and/or compost, and/or vermiculite

clean container for soaking seeds, eg. mason jar

measuring spoon (tbsp.)

optional: clear plastic food container i.e.) berry container see picture if you are not sure what I mean, you may also need tape and scissors if you have to adjust size to fit growth tray.

trowel

scissors or knife for harvesting grass

juicer

Step 2: Step 2: Soak


soak ~2tbsp seeds in water for 8-12 hours at room temperature, I use a clean mason jar (or any other container you have on hand) to soak them in.

Make sure there is enough water to cover seeds and then some.

This amount of seeds is good for an 8X4inch tray so if using a different size tray adjust accordingly.

Step 3: Step 3: Prepare Growing Tray


a)clean growing tray with soap and water or if you would like; sterilize with bleach (1 part liquid bleach to 9 parts water)-rinse well.

b)Add ~1/2-1 inch of soil, compost or vermiculite or any combination of these three.

I've found the best growth using a mixture of compost and vermiculite.

Step 4: Step 4: Planting


a)water growth tray so soil is quite moist

b)drain water from the container soaking seeds

c)spread seeds evenly over the surface of growth tray so you have a single layer of seeds, make sure they are not bunched up -can be tricky since the seeds stick together when wet. Press down to ensure seeds make contact with soil and sprinkle some loose soil on top as well.

d)place in a bright spot near a window or outside, but not in direct sunlight. (Artificial light can be used as well).

e) (optional)To keep the soil moist during the early stages of growth you can use the clear plastic container like a greenhouse. Remove any labels and make sure its clean enough to let light through. You may need to cut and tape several together, as I have in order to accommodate the size of the growing tray. A clear plastic bag can be used as well. Poke holes in it to provide airflow and place over growing tray. It is also useful in keeping cats out because they will love to have some wheatgrass too.

Step 5: Step 5: Its Growing

Water daily and watch it grow!

You may need to adjust height of plastic cover as grass gets taller, by propping it up with something ie. I used Lego; this will lessen its effectiveness of keeping the moisture in but still good for keeping kitty out.

The rate of growth may vary somewhat depending on the amount of light, temperature, soil, etc. so you may want to experiment to see which works best for you.

Growth tips:

-liquid fertilizer or compost tea could be added to boost growth

-you could use less soil because you just need enough for short term growth since only the first growth is used, once the grass is cut for use it will grow back but has less nutritional value.

-you can also grow on just paper towels with no soil at all, just make sure it stays moist and doesn't dry out.

-if you don't water enough the grass starts to yellow and the blades thin -not very good for juicing

-if there is too much moisture mold can form on the soil. If this happens, when your harvesting make sure you cut higher on the grass blade or if you want to play it safe don't use it at all since mold can trigger allergic reactions in some people. Also sterilize the growth tray with bleach if you will be reusing it.

-to prevent mold from forming, water less, don't cover the growth tray with the plastic container, and/or place growth tray where there is more air flow, like an open window, also try adding more drainage holes

-once you know how long it takes for it to grow and how long it takes for you to consume you can stagger several trays so you have a continuous supply of wheatgrass.

-wheatgrass also looks very pretty, so if you find a nice ceramic or clay pot to grow it in, you could use it decoratively.

Step 6: Step 6: Harvest Time

Once it reaches about 7 inches in height it can be harvested. (Feel free to let it grow longer).

I just use a knife (scissors work too), grab a handful of grass and cut close to the roots (cut carefully we don't want to cut any fingers with it).

Just cut however much you need and let the rest continue to grow. The grass that you've cut will grow back but the second growth has much less nutritional value. Its best to use only the first growth for juicing. I usually give the rest to my cat to eat or just compost it.

Step 7: Step 7: Juicing


Wheatgrass is fibrous and indigestible by humans, so it must be juiced in order to be consumed.

Harvest, juice and consume immediately for best nutritional benefit.

Proponents of wheatgrass recommend one ounce glass of straight wheatgrass daily, first thing in the morning.

preparing juice

1. low budget method -chew blades of grass and spit out fibre

2. If you have a regular centrifugal juicer, use that (at a low speed); however, some of the live enzymes in the wheatgrass will be destroyed (denatured by the heat) hence losing nutritional value.

3. Get a wheatgrass (masticating) juicer they can be either manual with a hand crank or electric. These do not hurt those living enzymes.

The yield varies with the type of juicer you use. You may need to use a larger growth tray or have more trays growing at the same time to ensure an adequate supply of wheatgrass juice for your needs.

As a warning, if you haven't tried wheatgrass before, it is sickly sweet and tastes like grass, so I recommend blending with other fruits or vegetables

My recipes

wheatgrass juice
lemon juice (juice a few slices of lemon with the wheatgrass)
add water to fill an 8oz glass
-the tartness of the lemon helps counteract the sweetness of the wheatgrass

wheatgrass juice
carrot juice
This provides you with your greens and your beta-carotene all in one drink

According to my seed supplier the only difference between feed seed and certified seed is the label and the price. He insists there is no difference and I have found this to be true - $7.50 per 50 pound bag of feed seed or $1200 for a bag of certified seed - I have used both. I grow my wheat grass in an automatic hydroponic sprayer in the closet of my house, with an inlet water and outlet drain lines poked through small holes into the laundry room. I have 12 trays, 2" x 13". I use one tray per day. With no dirt I juice one tray each day, roots, seeds, grass and all - I use a hand crank juicer and get almost a cup of juice each day. The automatic sprouter sprays a fine water mist over the sprouting trays for 5 minutes, six times per day. I have my own water well so I have good water - no fluoride or chlorine. After juicing my daily harvest I remove the pulp from my hand crank juicer and simmer it up into a cup of wheat grass tea. I would not say any of it is delicious, but it is nutritious so I just do it. I tried chewing the wheat sprouts but it takes too long and tastes horrible. The juice is not delicious but not all that bad. You can survive very well on wheat grass juice - at $12.00 per 50 pounds, consuming 1/4 cup per day, you can be very healthy while being very poor for a long time. I purchased 5 gallon food grade buckets at Lowes to store my seeds in to keep the bugs out - I keep my daily working supply in a one gallon glass jar. For those who are interested, I have been told you can also sprout hemp plants in the sprouter although the manufacture claims that such sprouting is not authorized - I have no personal experience but this is what I have been told. I am a total vegan - no meat, chicken, fish, eggs, milk or spiders and no booze. I weigh 143, 5'9", blood pressure 106/66, heart rate (at rest), 58. I am 74 YOA and challenge any person to keep up with me. I eat a lot of salads with home made dressing and lentils with brown rice and tomatoes and onions and garlic. No store bought canned or boxed garbage, or store bought salt poison, no sugar, no bread. I also eat rolled oats with raisins and honey (I have my own bee hive - come around and I'll introduce you to the Queen). I do not have a family doctor and have not been to such a villain for over 40 years! (Last time was a discharge physical in 1966). It is a given that I take no manner of medication! And absolutely NO kind of inoculations or vaccinations - flu shots or whatever - they will kill you! Infant inoculations are what causes SID - not malicious parents. If you have cancer it is because of what you eat - to cure it (and all maladies), changing what you eat! Cheers, I'm Eric, WhoRU??

Hi Eric,

I'm Jerald. I'll be turning 54 next month and I'm tired of all the meds, doctor visits, and overall discomfort. I'm starting out with wheatgrass with other methods of juicing. After every piece of meat I eat, it's as if more energy is taken out of me. I also have been reading about spirulina. Is this the right path I'm on? Know better but do not know which way to start. Can you help

Hello Eric, My name is Roy. Just found the Instructibles web site and joined up. I've been looking for tips on growing wheat grass and want to set up an automatic system. I admire your diet and am envious of your health. I am trying an all raw diet but find it pretty hard and socially complicating. Though I've lived a rather "holistic" lifestyle, being vegetarian, vegan, even fruitarian for periods, I find myself burdened with health problems that I'm working to overcome. I would greatly appreciate any tips you might have on setting up a wheat grass grow op :) I can't tie into my plumbing so, am designing something with a pump and reservoir. Cheers!

eggs and milk is not a meat product, why boycott those? not to mention they both are good for the body, as long as monsanto stays away from the milk, and you get eggs from a farm that does not do the production.

Good stuff Eric. That sounds like an awesome setup you are using. So each tray only needs 11 days to sprout and grow? and... What kind of lights does your setup use? Red/Blue LEDs? Fluorescents? Thanks.

author
Eric WhoRU (author)hapyman2009-02-19

Well, actually, you could probably press the juice sooner, maybe even in only 8 days. For light I use a fluorescent, with one single 15" tube, purchased at Lowe's as a light for garden or aquarium, for about $15.00, before Omoneybombthenation's inflationary give away scam.

wasn't there a problem with wheatgrass juice mixed with fruit juices-? something with the fruit acid which damages the wanted chlorophyll... we moved and sadly i'm not through the boxes yet and when i start planting it again for health benefit reasons for my family and friends ...

author
ChrysN (author)Xenia1232016-07-14

I haven't heard that about fruit acid. Though once the wheatgrass reaches your stomach it mixes with your stomach acids, which are much stronger.

author
Xenia123 (author)ChrysN2016-07-26

Ok. Again, I'm not too secure yet...

The gastric juices are inside the body, when you already swallowed all the good ingredients...

Better store some harvested grass than keep the pressed juice.

curious, many have said wheatgrass has helped them to keep their natural hair color ( not turn grey ) at 74 as this theory held true for you?

author
mart1n (author)CaryfaithS2015-07-19

It would be because of the copper in wheat grass. A trace mineral that many lack.

You would need a decent amount of good quality wheat grass or other good copper sources to reverse to original hair color.

Another possibility is colloidal copper.

Copper is good for a lot more.

And wheat grass and edible weeds contain many more vits&mins that many people lack today. Grocery greens and fruits are pretty much grown on mineral depleted soils. Even the animals we eat are malnutritioned.

Growing your own food is the way to go.

How do you grow with paper towels? Can you please explain, I think it's a better suitable alternative for my household.

author
ChrysN (author)jstnb2013-06-01

To grow on paper towels it is done basically the same way. Soak the seeds ahead of time. Fold several layers of paper towel and lay it in a tray. Soak the towel with water and add the seeds. Keep moist -the towels will dry out more quickly than the soil so it is best to cover with a plastic dome. Another alternative to paper towels is baby's blanket -it holds water better.

I've just started growing wheatgrass and have juiced about 4 oz. so far! It's interesting that this was your first 'ible, glad I found it. BTW, are you still growing and juicing?

author
ChrysN (author)Creativeman2012-10-18

Yes, I don't know where I got the courage to post my first 'ible, but I am glad I did. I see you started in 2008 too.

I still grow wheat grass but it is mostly for my cat. I had bought a really nice juicer a few years back and was doing a lot of juicing and adding wheat grass to fruits and vegetables, but I have gotten lazy lately. I should start again (maybe I won't feel so lazy if I do). Do you just juice wheatgrass or other fruits/vegetables with it?

author
Creativeman (author)ChrysN2012-10-19

I am drinking the wheatgrass juice straight, but we do other smoothies, both fruit and vegetable greens, daily. Thanks for your reply, and I'd hardly classify you as lazy, with all you do!

author
lexkeepsitsimple (author)2012-01-20

This is awesome, but also, if you grow the wheat grass hydroponically (use burlap as a substrate) in a small tray with ocean water (if you live near the ocean)- you will have even more nutritious wheat grass! :)

author
bringageek (author)2011-10-21

Nicely done! Informative and thorough -- but still simple and easy to follow!

I do have a question though. Say I wanted to grow the wheat grass not for eating or juicing, but just because I like the look of it -- how could I go about keeping the grass alive and healthy and as pretty as it looks in your Day 5 photo?

Other than the right balance of sunlight, airflow and watering, what else could/should I look at doing differently during setup? or additionally after it's already grown?

Thanks again! And please let me know... I live in a condo and really want to bring a little more of the outside in.


Cheers,

Phil

ChrysN (author)bringageek2011-10-21

If you want to keep the grass longer you will need more soil, I used a shallow tray for mine and it gets root bound very quickly, so definitely a deeper pot is necessary.
You should also trim the grass otherwise it gets long, spindly and either dries out and goes to seed. I would keep the height at about 5-6 inches, I guess it's like mowing the lawn.

I hope that helps.

author
SIRJAMES09 (author)2011-07-21

from the time you first plant it, Wheat grass takes 7 - 10 days to sprout, and about 2 - 4 weeks till you can get a first cutting from it.

Eventually I transplanted mine into a bigger pot(18 inch diameter) & am waiting for it to turn to seed at which time I will harvest it & start another planting. I will plant directly into a medium sized pot tho this next time.

author
SIRJAMES09 (author)2011-07-21

tar & nicoteen helps the grass grow stronger....it is not required, but it helps, so if you know someone who smokes, have them blow some smoke into the tray.

I remember this from a college science project.

another thing.

when I first started growing mine, I started it in a tererrium. that way, I never had to worry about watering it & the temperature stayed balanced till the grass out grew the tererrium. I'm sorry if my spelling is not that great.

Hi Whitedove,

As important aswheat grass and a vegan diet is, with the lousy invironment we live in our bodies need all the help we can give them. Our imune system is actually the key to eliminating joint pain, cancer, prostate problems, you name it, if our imune system is not given a boost eating a vegan diet is going to take many months to correct a sick overweight body. Long time recovery causes discouragement and back-sliding, however, I have come accross an imune system boost that I have been using for about three months with phenominal results, it is called MMS - Mirical Mineral Solution. It is so cheap it is almost free. It is so effective that the government is trying to outlaw it. It cannot be patented so big Pharma will not offer it - but, as I wrote, I have been using it and it works for me. As I am not a doctor I cannot give medical advice but I sure am glad I found out about it - it even does wonders for my teeth - tightening up teeth that were so loose in my jaw bone I thought they were going to fall out.

If you would like to know more go to Jim Humble's website below and read everything there - especially Jim's two books. Book one is free on line, he charges for book two but it is worth it. Jim is not all that good a writer and takes a while to get to the point so I suggest you do not skip any part. After tyou read Jim's two books go read all the rest of his stuff on his website.

As a little help, Jim writes a lot about eyedroppers and the different size of drops - do not try to sort all that out because the size and number of drops will be determined by the way each person's body reacts, so I adjusted the number of drops I use based on diarehia or heart burn, then I reduced my dose a little, following Jim's recomendations along those lines. I really like the large diameter eyefroppers I bought at Fred's Pharmact for one dollar each - DO NOT SWITCT THE EYEDROPPERS IN THE TWO COLUTIONS!!!!!

One other helpful hint - in his two books Jim writes a lot about mixing the MMS with fruit juices - but in his later writings he suggests putting the MMS - citric acid mix in veggie-capsules. When I read that I stopped the fruit juice mix and have been using veggie caps ever since - Jim also recvomments size ought - I tried that size and determined size double ought is much better. I purchased 2500 double ought veggie capsules on eBay for about $28.00, including shipping.

Jim also insists on a three minute mix of the MMS and citric acid - I have followed that and find it to be very important. I boughts a 3 minute hour-glass sand egg timer on eBay for less that $5.00.

One more point, in his later writings Jim advises using a 50% citric acid - this makes it much easier to mix the MMS and citric acid and I have been using the 50% cirtic acid - one drop MMS for one drop 50% citric acid.

Jim provides the proceedure for making your own MMS solution in his book 2.

The cost for one year of MMS imune system boost will be less than $50.00.

The MMS solution tastes horible - mixing it with fruit juice to cover up the taste only makes the fruit juice tast horrible - I put it in a capsule immediately before swollowing the capsule with a full glass of water, so I don't tast the MMS at all..

Jim Humble has two websites - jimhumble.com and jimhumble.biz - the biz site is where most of his stuff is located.

Cheers,

Eric Williams

i want to get a cat but my mom say they stink (which i think is not true :( ) do they actually smell a lot and can a cat get along with my pet guinea-pig named baby

author
ChrysN (author)albylovesscience2009-08-30

Cats are really clean, they are always washing themselves (with their tongue), my cat doesn't smell at all. The litter box can be stinky, but if you clean it regularly and keep it in an out of the way place it should be okay. I think cats can get along with other pets, like a guinea pig, it may just take some time to get used to each other. Keep them apart at first and slowly introduce them to each other.

author
b1russell (author)ChrysN2010-03-08

Alby, I agree with what Chrys said above.  Here's a little more, though.  When trying to overcome the prejudice of a parent (especially a MOM), you need to be extra diligent in caring for the existing pet, first, to convince her that you'd do the same for the new one.  Then, once she gives in, cleaning the litter box "regularly" means every single day, at least once!  I keep my cats' litter boxes inside a grocery-store cereal carton to contain the "cast-off" from cats' paws, both scratching and jumping out.  The carton is about the same size as the litter box, just taller.  This slightly minimizes the need to sweep and/or vacuum around the litter box multiple times a day.  Mom will also be happier if you use the best quality litter you can find, instead of the cheapest!

Great instructible - Thanks so much! Would it still keep it's nutritional value if frozen?  Just had a thought that freezing it in ice cube trays would make a handy way to store it then plunking a couple of cubes in a blender to mix with a smoothie.

ChrysN (author)Retirement12010-01-28

That sounds like a great idea!  It may lose some of it's nutritional value, but I'm sure it would still be good for you.

This is more of a question than a comment.  I found cat grass seeds years ago and grew them for my cats.  They looked funny gnawing at the gras but loved it.  One of the farmers at our organic type farmer's market here in Birmingham, Alabama had wheat grass, which looked like the picture shown here.  They were unimpressed and after one gnaw, wouldn't eat it.  Ya'll have mentioned wheat grass seeds, oat grass seeds and cat grass seeds.  Can the one the cats love - the cat grass seeds - be different than wheat grass?  Has anyone else had the same experience? 

author
ChrysN (author)bythepiece2009-11-22

I think that most seeds sold as cat grass seeds are actually oat.  Cats can eat both oat or wheat (or other types of grasses too), my cat doesn't seem to have a preference,  but cats have differing tastes.
