Benefits and features of BioSnacky original seed sprouters
- Eco-friendly BPA free acrylic glass (specially recommended for foodstuffs)
- Dishwasher-safe to a temperature of approx 85°C
- Contains no cadmium or formaldehyde
- Optimum light exposure and air circulation due to the transparent round seed trays with ventilation slits
This large seed sprouter is made from environmentally friendly acrylic. It consists of three trays for the germination of seeds, a tray for collecting water used to irrigate your seeds and a lid.
With the 3 tier sprouter, you will be able to 'sow' your sprouts at staggered intervals – starting every 2 or 3 days. This allows you to have a more consistent supply of sprouts. As one tray of sprouts is ready for harvesting, the others will contain seeds just starting to germinate.
Water the 3 tier germinator from the topmost tray 2 or 3 times daily and see the water drain through all trays via the specially designed plug, which uses capillary action to make sure that all layers remain moist, feeding your seeds and sprouts.
Due to the unique irrigation system developed for the original bioSnacky sprouter seeds do not require soaking prior to sowing.
Rinse lid, seed trays, syphons, water tray and desired seeds thoroughly under cold running water.
Place the required amount of seeds on each seed tray with a tablespoon. Do not exceed the recommended amounts or the growth of you seeds will be affected.
When stacking seed trays containing seeds, ensure that the red syphons are not directly on top of each other but are staggered.
Pour sufficient water into the uppermost seed tray in order to submerge the siphon cap (at least ½ litre). You must put sufficient water into the Sprouter otherwise there will not be enough water pressure. As a result of the way the bioSnacky Original Sprouter has been designed, each seed tray will automatically be watered one after the other. Any surplus water will be collected in the water tray. Empty the water tray as soon as the water has drained through the Sprouter. This surplus water is ideal for use on indoor plants.
Place your closed Original Sprouter in a well lit spot not in direct sunlight at room temperature (18-22°C).
All surplus water must drain through the Sprouter and be disposed of, otherwise you risk suffocating the seeds in stagnant water.
A small amount of water (1-2 tablespoons) will automatically remain in each seed tray. This provides the seeds with the ideal amount of water to germinate and grow.
Your live shoots and sprouts are ready for harvesting within 2-5 days; herbage plants - like Alfalfa - will be ready in 6-8 days.
After harvesting, clean your Sprouter thoroughly with a mixture of water and vinegar and allow to dry naturally. The seed trays, water tray and lid are dishwasher safe (top shelf only, up to 85C – not the syphons).
The bioSnacky Glass Sprouter comprises of:
one flat lid - This ensures a consistently damp environment and protects seedlings from dust and other harmful external influences.
three seed trays - Large, transparent seed trays enable you to cultivate up to three different types of seeds as the same time. Or, if you prefer, you may harvest continually by staggering the sowing of seeds.
unique ventilation slits - 3 ventilation slits in each seed tray and in the lid ensure that metabolic gases are completely discharged.
three red drainage syphons - These special drainage syphons ensure a steady flow of water through the sprouter and a constant level of moisture.
one water tray (base) - After seeds have been watered, all surplus water is collected in the water tray at the base of the sprouter.
The entire unit ensemble measures 20.5cm in diameter and 15 cm in height. Each seed tray is 4 cm in height.
