I am sprouting lentils and quinoa in two separate mason jars. This is my first time sprouting. How long does it take to sprout? This is the second day and the lentils already have little tails on them and so do the quinoa. How do I know when they are done? I know the quinoa is supposed to take less time.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!!

How are you doing them, Laura? Do you use shelled or hulled seeds? I soak seeds in the shell overnight then drain and keep drained and covered for 1.5-2 days, rinsing twice daily until they start to sprout a little tail. Then fill a seed tray inside a gravel tray with approx 1" of soil, spread the sprouted seeds evenly and press into the soil, and cover with another gravel tray (without drainage holes so no light can get in) and keep covered for 2 days or so, watering and draining daily. The sprouts take off and will actually begin to lift the covering tray up! Then remove the cover tray and they will continue to grow very fast. Some people cover the sprouted seeds with soil when planting in the tray before covering but I've found no benefit to this - the sprouts grow equally well and stay upright, and it's much easier to harvest them because there is much less soil to rinse off - only from the roots. I wish you every success in sprouting your seeds!
