How To Grow & Use Wheat Grass
Wheat grass can be grown in any sheltered place and where the temperature is mild. The direct rays of the sun have a tendency to sap the strength from the grass.
For growing wheat grass, a good variety of wheat should be soaked for 8 to 10 hours. The water should then be drained and these grains should be allowed to sprout for 15 hours. Earthen pots or wooden trays can be used to grow the wheat grass. They should be filled with compost manure and the wheat sprouts should be spread. They should be sprinkled with water once or twice a day and allowed to stay as such for six to seven days until the grass grows five to seven inches high. The grass can be cut with a scissors. It should be immediately washed and ground. Thereafter, the juice of the ground pulp should be extracted through a fine piece of cloth. The juice so extracted should be taken immediately, as its efficacy reduces every minute and the medicinal value is completely lost after three hours.
