PEA SHOOT STORY or HOW TO GROW PEA SHOOTS AT HOME WITHOUT SOIL

Growing pea shoots in the GAIA Sprouter step by step:

After soaking a handful of dry peas in water for 12 hours, plump seeds are placed in the moisten earthenware sprouter GAIA (no soil) and covered with the lid of the sprouter. After few days the peas start to germinate.  They are watered once to twice a day. The GAIA Clay Sprouter provides the right humid but breathable environment to ensure healthy and steady growth. When the grown shoots cannot be covered with the lid, the sprouter is left open and placed on a sunny spot. Plant roots will grow through the drainage holes on the bottom of the GAIA clay tray. The roots use all the extra water that gathers in the base part of the sprouter.

This is a simple way to generate your own indoor greens – any season, any weather. Plant shoots are readily available and do not require processing – juts chop and eat. You can’t get them any fresher!
