Sprouting is very simple!


1. Soak 1 teaspoon cress seeds (for 4.70inch (12cm) dish), 2 teaspoons (for 6.92inch (16cm) dish), 4 teaspoons (for 8.46inch (21.5cm) dish) of seeds for about 15 minutes, then pour the mass upon the sieve.


2. Use a knife to spread the cress seeds evenly and not too thick (one layer, seeds next to each other) on the sieve.


3. Cover the seeds with a plate (vice versa), for two days to prevent them for drying out (for 4.7inch (12cm) dish with saucer; for 6.92inch (16cm) dish with dessert plate; for 8.46inch (21.5cm) dish with dinner plate). Sprinkle the seeds twice a day with a spray bottle.


4. As soon as the roots have grown through the sieve, rinse the roots and seeds twice a day under running water. Mind that there is no water left over in the dish.


5. Harvests delicious sprouts with the roots after about 6-8 days.

Cleaning:  After the harvest, soak the sieve in water (few minutes), scrape the remains of with a knife, and then rinse.
The sieve is not intended for cleaning in a dishwasher.

Note: Cress is one of the seeds that have to be quiet during germination. Until the root formation (2-3 days) they are sprayed twice daily with water.
Special feature: The sprouts can be harvested with roots!
