Wheatgrass contains various minerals, amino acids and vitamins, making it a very nutritious means for removing toxins as well as a decorative addition to your indoor garden. Wheatgrass can be used in a variety of ways, including poultices, tea and juice. The blades grow quickly and can be harvested within seven to 10 days. The plant does not need a lot of sunlight but requires careful heat and moisture maintenance to produce a healthy plant.

 

Looking After Wheatgrass

Wheatgrass likes to grow in a cool, airy place with good natural light and not in direct sunlight. If you could imagine a shady place under a tree, that¿s the ideal environment. Please be mindful of keeping wheatgrass outside as all animals/ pets love eating it, especially birds. Keep your wheat grass away from a) Heat , such as ovens, toasters, display lights b) Dark Corners C) Public. People love to touch the grass which is not hygienically healthy.

Misting your Wheatgrass

Mist your plants twice a day using a spray bottle. You may need to water the plant more or less often based on its environment. Check the soil or root system and water as needed to keep the roots from drying out.

Maintaining the Balance

Maintain the balance of moisture and air circulation to avoid mold. It is better to have the plant a little dry than overly wet. Use a watering combination of 1 tablespoon of baking soda to a gallon of water to help inhibit any mold. Move the plant when necessary to increase the air circulation.

Harvesting your Wheatgrass

Harvest the plant when the blades are at least 17.78 Centimetres tall. Cut the blade at the soil line. If you are not using the wheatgrass immediately after cutting, store the blades in a cool place, such as a refrigerator, up to seven to nine days.
