When Do I Use Large Trays Instead of the Mini Trays?

You'll require large trays for growing wheatgrass and other crops that may use soil, such as sunflower, and buckwheat. 

The late Ann Wigmore, a foremost sprouting expert, recommended juicing and consuming wheatgrass in liquid form, but one needs to grow large amounts of sprouts to get just a few ounces of liquid. The large trays are handy for wheatgrass that is grown in 2 stages. The first stage (from seed to about 2" height) takes 3 to 4 days; this is the critical time when the crop is sensitive to mold or rotting. The way the EasyGreen® functions minimizes such a risk. On completion of phase one, the tray is taken out of the EasyGreen® to a sunny spot for "greening" where the grass ample light or direct sunlight. Now a second large tray is needed to start a new crop, and when the second tray is removed for "greening" a third large tray is needed to start the third crop.

Depending on the season of the year, health enthusiasts need three large trays to constantly produce crops. This is one reason we include the large trays in our suggested accessories. Large trays are fast sellers and very popular with those growing buckwheat, sunflowers and growing and juicing wheatgrass and other crops.
