Grow wheat grass indoor

10.27.2013




I normally see wheat grass growing in organic shops and juice bars. Do you know that they can be grown easily? And you can grow them at home right in your kitchen?

Popularly called bread or common wheat, Triticum aestivum is a subspecies of the Grass Family, Poaceae. The annual originates from the Mediterranean region and Southwest Asia.

Baby wheat plants are widely known to be highly nutritious. Packed with vitamins, amino acids, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, they offer numerous health benefits and often used to make juice.



The chart below shows the steps of growing wheat grass. For more information on each step and a few growing tips, read this article that I have written for the New Straits Times.



Happy growing and juicing!
