Watch the 1-minute video to learn the super easy method, using supplies you already have in your kitchen.
Here’s some extra info to help you succeed:
Use almonds in the shell.
This way you can ensure the almonds have not been processed and still have the potential to germinate. Carefully crack the shells open so you don’t break the seeds inside.
Keep mold off
Almonds are sensitive to mold. That’s why its important to rinse them 2x per day and let them drain. If your seeds develop mold, wipe them off gently with diluted hydrogen peroxide.
Are you nuts about nuts?
The same technique will also work on peanuts. Did you know peanuts are not nuts but legumes?
Did you successfully sprout your almond?
Time to set it up on water, to grow further. The perfect tool for the job is a porcelain germination plate. It will keep the seed dry and will make your little floating forest look amazing.
