Open the lid and place away from direct heat or sunlight. Water lightly every second day or as required.
When kept in room temperature sprouts will continue to grow. Depending on the season and climate, they can be kept for several days. Eventually they will get overgrown and will lose color and shape. At this stage flavor and nutritional value will deteriorate.
When kept refrigerated , live sprouts will last for as long as 2 weeks, sometimes even longer.
If you do keep them refrigerated, it is best to keep the lid on.
Watering is best done by placing the punnet in a pan or tray of shallow water about 2 cm deep or as high as the soil level.
Leave for about 2 minutes and remove from the water.
Alternatively you can water the sprouts under your kitchen tap, using a very small stream and holding the punnet in your hand while direct the water along its edges.
Cutting your live sprouts:
With your fingers, gently gather a handful of the leafy part of the sprouts. Using scissors, cut above soil level. Be careful not to pull sprouts from the root.
Shake off any excess soil. Dunk the stems in cold water to rinse as required.
