Wheat grass is a popular grass to grow since it is loaded with nutrition. Wheat grass can be grown indoors or out, and can be consumed as a raw grass in salads or juiced for a concentrated liquid. Wheat grass, the young plant of regular wheat, is easy to grow and you can begin harvesting it in as little as one week.
Soak approximately four ounces of wheat seeds overnight in cool water for each pot you plan to plant with wheat grass.
Fill a 6-inch or larger planting container 3/4 full of potting soil.
Spread the soaked seeds evenly over the surface of the soil in the pot.
Cover the seeds with 1/8 to 1/4 inch of soil and water the pots.
Cover the pots with newspaper, which will create a dark environment that will encourage sprouting. Place the pots on a balcony or window sill.
Water the pots lightly daily and keep them covered with the newspaper until the small seedlings are visible. When the seedlings sprout, remove the newspaper.
Continue to water lightly daily until the grass reaches 7 to 8 inches in height.
Harvest the wheat grass for eating or juicing by cutting the grass 1/2 inch above the soil surface.
Continue to water the pot of grass daily to encourage further growth.
