How to Grow Rock Cress (Arabis)

Grow Cress In A Paper Towel

Fold a paper towel in half. Mist the towel with water so that it is damp but not dripping, and place it in a shallow container or tray. Leave the covering on the tray until the seeds sprout, usually in one to two days. Alternatively, place the tray in a dark room for a day or two. Move the uncovered tray into bright sunlight. To harvest the seedlings, snip them with clean scissors. Shake off the excess water. If not eating the sprouts immediately, place the cress in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator.
