Tips for Pea Shoots
Pea shoots do not need fertilizer. Peas are unique in that they absorb nitrogen from the air. Therefore, they do not need either fertilizer or soil to grow into delicious, crispy pea shoots in your sprout box. For the same reason, there is no fertilizer included in this Pea Shot Kit. All you have to do to grow the peas into delicious pea shoots is rinse them morning and night.
Space between the peas
Note that it is very important that there is some space between the peas when you want to grow them for pea shoots. This is because the peas rot if they lie close together for more than the 3 days that it takes you to grow pea sprouts. So if you want to grow your peas for pea shoots, you should thin them out a bit on day 3 so that the peas all lie in a layer and have a bit of air between each other.
Remove bad peas
There will always be a few peas that can not cope with the long growing time all the way to Pea shoots. You can recognize the ‘weak’ peas by chopping the pea. If you find such a pea during cultivation, remove it from the tray and rinse the tray afterwards so that the area is cleared of debris. The other peas continue to grow without problems. If you experience a lot of bad peas in the tray, it is typically due to the peas growing too densely. The solution is to leave more space around each pea in the tray if you want to grow them for pea shoots. This way they will be able to get rid of excess moisture and heat.
