Growing Wheat Grass

Yes I am growing grass! (not the kind you smoke) You guys are always thinking the worse! HA!

I love bringing the outdoors in and what better way than growing real grass!

I wasn't really sure on how to go about it, but I saw these rock tea light holders at Arhaus and I knew I needed to grow some grass!

First, I went to our local Whole Foods store and bought 2 LBs of wheat berries. (yeah I didn't know what a wheat berry was either!)

Then, I put a large handful into a glass jar and added some water. I let them soak for almost a whole day.

Next, I added some potting soil to my rock'n rocks!

Then I spread the soaked seeds onto the top of the soil.

If you look close enough, you can actually see some little white sprouts!

I soaked the soil really well and left them on the kitchen windowsill over the weekend.

After only 4 days!! Not kidding.....


Why can't our yard grass grow that quickly? Ummm...

I think they are adorable. I am going to move them into the dining room this weekend. I need a little green miracle in that room!

What have you been working on this week? Be back tomorrow to show you some more crazy projects!

  1. Lol. I was thinking the same thing... why can't the grass in our yards grow in 4 days. But these are really cute!

    1. Thanks Colleen! Maybe we just need different grass for our yards!

  2. you won't believe but I have been trying to grow wheat grass and have been failing numerous times, your tutorial seems easy and I will give it another try, fingers crossed.. I wish I succeed this time.. :)
    Thanks for linking up

  3. “I need a little green miracle in that room!” – Same goes for me! I think it will be good to have some greens in their spaces. And I’m glad that you opted for wheatgrass. Wheatgrass has tons of benefits. It is a powerful detoxifier, liver, and blood protector. The enzymes and amino acids found in amino acids can help protect you from carcinogens. Anyway, those rock pots look awesome! They rock!
