Indoor Edible Grass Grow


I have bought online from Amazon a tray with a packet from seeds; barley, oak and wheat. These seeds should sprout into grass. The instructions on the back of the box say to water moderately and to keep seeds damp with moisture to ensure growth.

Well I am happy to say, my grass shoots are already sprouting up and are looking good. As I don't have a garden whilst living in a flat above some garages, I wanted to grow a little tray of grass (or a pot, it doesn't matter which) to feed my two guinea pigs. I hope they will like it.

I have been sprinkling water droplets over the seeds using only my fingers. I place my fingers into a small glass measuring jug and sprinkle the water. The seeds were dry, light colours at first, but now they are dark brown and damp colours.

As I sprinkle water them I am quite fascinated by what the roots look like. They were furry and now they are little stick shoots. I have never actually grown anything so this feels quite cool when watching it's development.

To my delight, I now have indoor edible grass growing out of the tray. It's green and looks wonderful. I snipped off the top part to feed the guinea pigs. They enjoyed the grass, gobbling it all down. The grass grow now looks as though I've given it a hair cut - a trim.


Thanks for reading.
