HOW TO GROW CHIA SEEDS AT HOME

WHY SPROUTING CHIA SEEDS AT HOME?

Chia seeds have gained popularity recently though they were once a staple food in ancient cultures. They are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. And because of their mucilaginous properties, they make a great pudding! Chia sprouts, however, can present a bit of a challenge due to these same properties.

Seeds such as chia, flax, and other mucilaginous seeds are best sprouted on unglazed clay or terra cotta (think Chia Pet!). So today, we're showing you exactly how to grow chia seeds into chia sprouts at home!

INSTRUCTIONS FOR DRY-SPROUTING CHIA SEEDS

  1. Sprinkle a thin layer of chia seeds on the bottom of a terra cotta dish.
  2. Set the terra cotta dish in a larger plate of water.
  3. Cover with another plate.
  4. As the terra cotta dish soaks up water from the plate below, the terra cotta dish will provide exactly the right amount of water to sprout the chia seeds.
  5. On the second and third days, lightly mist the seeds with fresh, clean water.
  6. Chia sprouts are ready to harvest in 2-3 days.

ALTERNATE METHOD FOR GROWING CHIA SEEDS

  1. Lay a nylon or linen cloth on a plate.
  2. Spray a fine mist of water onto the cloth.
  3. Sprinkle a layer of chia seeds on top of the cloth. Mist seeds lightly with fresh, clean water.
  4. Cover with another plate. Mist lightly once per day.
  5. Chia sprouts are ready to harvest in 2-3 days.
