Let's go through the steps of how to grow wheatgrass at home. There are several methods to choose from. The most common method is to take a garden tray, fill it with soil, densely sprinkle wheat seeds on top, and water every day. There are certain humidity conditions that make wheatgrass grow faster, so some people will cover their wheatgrass when it's young to trap in humidity.
Call it laziness, but this is not easy enough for me to incorporate into my busy routine. For one, the less mess the better. I hate a setup where I have cleanup to do afterwards. I'm a proponent of growing wheatgrass without soil considering it's less messy (a big factor when deciding whether to grow something inside your home). Who wants to be spilling dirt all over the kitchen counter?! Plus, when I grow without soil, I can skip the tedious step of cleaning dirt off the final product. On top of that, making sure the soil is wet enough every day and remembering when to put on and take off a humidity cover gets away from me.
Peeling the Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilt cover after 4 days of growing exposes the young wheatgrass to the less humid outside air.

The HAMAMA Grow Kit is definitely the easiest way to grow wheatgrass at home. There's no mess involved, you don't have to remember to water it, and setup literally takes thirty seconds: pour 3 cups of water into the grow tray and place a Seed Quilt inside. The Sweet Wheatgrass Seed Quilts take care of the humidity trapping step since the Seed Quilt cover acts as a humidity-trapping cover in itself! Do no work and get a wheatgrass harvest in 10 days?! Yes please...all these factors make the HAMAMA Grow Kit the easiest possible answer to the question of how to grow organic wheatgrass seeds without soil and how to grow wheatgrass indoors in general.

You might be wondering if you have the right wheatgrass growing conditions in your home. What's great about wheatgrass is that it doesn't need much light to grow, which means there's not much that can go wrong. Temperature-wise, if your home is comfortable for you, it'll be just fine for your wheatgrass. To check how your wheatgrass is really doing, periodically peek under the Seed Quilt and check on the roots!
