How Many Seeds To Use For Sprouting By container Size?

One of the key points to know is how many seeds to use, by sprouting container size. Here are a few starting guidelines which can be adjusted according to your experience. I have found that these measurements generally work, but keep in mind that I use my spouts after they have had a couple of days to mature and fill the container. If you use your sprouts as soon as they emerge, you may want to up the quantity a little bit.

  • 1 teaspoon (tsp) of dry seeds for a pint (16 oz) container
  • 2 tsp of seeds for a quart (32 oz) container
  • 1 Tablespoon of seeds for a ½ gallon (64 oz) container
