Hey guys,

Last night I started growing my first batch of sprouts and I'm guessing I have done something wrong.

Any tips would be appreciated.

I have one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/A-Vogel-BioSnacky-Small-Germinator-Jar/dp/B002CD58V4/ref=pd_cp_kh_0

Soaked the seeds over night, drained and then nothing has happened.

What did you expect to occur overnight?

Slowly sprouting. It's not just that though, I want to know I'm doing the best job possible.

I am sprouting sunflower seeds right now. Takes about three to four days depending on how warm it is. I like to wait until they are showing little green leaves. Agree with the other posters. Rinse, rinse, rinse! Keep them out of direct sunlight. Then refrigerate when they're ready.

I know it isn't strict paleo, but I like to spread some sunflower butter on a thin slice of sourdough, top with sprouts and sprinkle with Celtic sea salt.

I bought some supposedly "raw" sunflower seeds from Whole Foods, but they ended up getting slimy. If you can get Trader Joe's raw seeds, those sprout really well.

I agree with Janknitz, Rinse them twice daily, and if they're good seeds, then they'll sprout!

I've got my first batch of sprouts going this morning. Its been about 7.5 hours and I can already see seeds splitting. Good sign. I'd expect to the mojority sprouting by tomorrow morning. Good luck!

It's not rocket science. I grow mine in a plain old canning jar with a screen in the lid. Rinse them twice daily and if they are good seeds they!'ll sprout. You should be seeing signs of sprouting already.

There's a question whether alfalfa seeds are paleo. I like broccoli and onion sprouts. And sunflower sprouts are yummy!

I think you are expecting too much too soon. I've been given a sprouter as a birthday present and have started my first seeds this afternoon but I'm not expecting anything by tomorrow morning.
