How to grow peanuts into plants
Here’s a quick tutorial to teach you how we grow peanuts into plants.
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:
Don’t use roasted peanuts.
Roasted/salted peanuts may be more delicious, but they can no longer germinate. Make sure you use raw peanuts in the shell, or they won’t grow.
Rinse and repeat
It’s very important to rinse your peanuts at least twice a day to prevent bacteria growing. If that happens, you’ll end up with a mushy mess instead of pretty new plants…
Did you know?
Peanuts are not nuts, but legumes! That’s the same family as beans, chickpeas and lentils…
You can try to grow pistachios and almonds in the same way as the peanut though. We’ve also got a tutorial for almonds here.
Did you successfully sprout your peanut?
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.
