It is very easy to make sprouts. You need to soak the seeds in a container with water. Keep them soaked overnight. Make sure that the volume of water is at least three times the amount of sprouts. Wash the sprouts with fresh water in the morning and tie them in a soft cloth (cotton or woven). It takes 2-4 days for the seeds to germinate. In summer, do not forget to sprinkle water on the cloth in which the seeds are tied. This ensures that the seeds have enough oxygen and water to sprout.
You will notice how the seeds transform after they germinate.
