*Must be advanced by the user by this time by removing germination cover

Green indicates period for tasting

Phase 1

Watering

In this phase your plant will receive continuous misting to begin dissolving the nutrients in the sIO and jumpstart germination. Be sure to keep the black humidity cover on during this phase.

Phase 2

Germination

When the majority of seeds have germinated, remove humidity cover and update app to transition to the Seedling growth phase. If germination occurs and the humidity cover is not removed within 6 days, the plant will die. If germination does not occur within 6 days contact support.

Phase 3

Seedling

Sprouts expand and grow.

Phase 4

Mature

Your wheatgrass is ready to taste! If you are ready to harvest your wheatgrass, remove sIO disk from SproutsIO basin. Using scissors, cut the plants from the disk, cutting as close to the sIO top as possible. Record your harvest in the app.
