Pull back the cover you are using while the wheatgrass seeds are germinating, the day after you plant them.
Spray a light mist over the entire seed area with the spray bottle.
Replace the cover over the seeds.
Repeat Steps 1 through 3 once per day until you see leaves and stems sprouting from the seeds. When the seeds begin to germinate, do not replace the cover after spraying the seeds.
Continue spraying the seeds once per day following germination.
Harvest the wheatgrass when it is approximately eight inches tall. Cut it down so that the grass is 1/2 inch tall.
Spray the cut wheatgrass daily in the same fashion and prepare to harvest again in another week.
Discard the seeds and wheatgrass after two harvests and begin again.
