Sprouting Chia Microgreens Instructions

Chia seeds are mucilaginous and cannot be sprouted using conventional tray or jar sprouters.There are several different approaches to sprouting Chia, two of which are detailed below.  However, we recommend you check out or sister website for a dedicated hydroponic chia microgreens growing kit, which we have found to be the absolute best way to sprout and grow chia.  Here are two other methods we have tried:

Method One:

  1. Sprinkle a thin layer of Chia Seed on the bottom of a terra cotta dish or plate (unsealed/uncoated).
  2. Set the terra cotta dish in a larger plate of water.
  3. Cover with another plate.
  4. Small amounts of water permeate the terra cotta plate upon which the chia seeds sit, and provide exactly the right amount of water to sprout them.
  5. On the second day, lightly mist the seeds.
  6. Harvest on the third day.
  7. It takes about 2 or 3 days to get healthy Chia sprouts.

An alternate method:

  1. Lay a nylon or linen cloth on a plate.
  2. Spray a fine mist of water onto the cloth.
  3. Sprinkle 1 layer Chia Seed on top of the bag. Mist it lightly.
  4. Cover with another plate, misting lightly once per day.
  5. You will have Chia sprouts in about 3 or more.
