Are there any pictures that show how the sprouts grow? These pictures look like someone through a bunch of Tauge bean sprouts into it. Most plants grow from the seed toward the light.
Let's be honest here.
Most people don't eat veggies.
And did you think anyone would actually grow something before this drop posted? Most drops are done in a certain time frame. Meaning MassDrop only had this item for a photo shoot.
All that said. Maybe it's reverse hydroponics bro. :D
I am stretching my memory back to high school for this, but I think plants behave differently when they are just sprouting. The behavior tends to be growth in opposition to gravity so that the little chutes can breach the soil and expose their leaves. In the absence of soil to hold the seed in place while the sprout reaches upward, you just get a big tangle.
At any rate, a google image search turned up a lot of pictures that look staged, and one or two that look like user-generated images. In these, the sprouts appear to grown in a big tangle and filled up the jar. Granted it looks a bit messier inside the jar than in these manicured promo images, but still cool enough to sit on my countertop.
The pics of the jars have actual sprouts in them.
If you rinse the sprouts every day and they are not anchored to anything, they will all be growing in random directions like in the picture. I've done sprouts in Mason jars before and they end up looking just like this.
Also @BrainFlush Most people don't eat veggies? That's weird and certifiably false.
Based on a few resources locally and using my experience. :D
People try to but it's not enough.
Most eat protein, carbs, sugar.
Not the good kinds either.
But I could be wrong.
Alfalfa spouts are the easiest, they don't have to be in light to grow. Just soak for 24 hours in water, then rinse once or twice a day and in 4-5 days you have sprouts. Super easy.
