Ventilated Sprouting Jar

DIY Sprouts

You don’t have to be a pro to get behind this home sprouting jar—beginners and experienced sprouters alike will appreciate it. The design creates climate-perfect, mess-free conditions to grow alfalfa, lentils, radishes, and any other edible seeds.

Bivita was engineered to guide you through the process and eliminate the most
common problem with DIY sprouting: mold. Its base has integrated ventilation and a steel mesh strainer that lifts your seeds above the water catch-all to keep the environment just right.

You may be wondering “What’s so special about sprouts?” Well, before a seed can sprout, it creates all the vitamins, minerals, and beneficial enzymes it needs to survive. They’re at this nutrient-rich sweet spot. As the plant enters a more mature stage of growth, those vitamins start to diminish.

Creating your sprouts is simple. Place seeds, grains, or beans in the overturned dome with water, swish, then turn the dome over so what’s inside will drain. Repeat the swish-and-turn each morning and night for the next 3-4 days. And, boom. You’ll have yummy, fibrous sprouts to top off your salads and sandwiches.

Hone your sprouting skills and give your body a little nutrient boost with this smartly designed mini green house.

    Just put the BIVITA on the countertop in your kitchen away from direct sunlight and it will do just fine.

    Question: How long does it take to grow a container full of sprouts? And how long will they stay good once grown? Should you remove and refrigerate them once they are grown, or do you leave them in the Bivita? So many questions. So little seeds. :)

    Hello Travis, great questions, it takes about 4 days to fully grow the spouts. After that you can remove them and store them in the refrigerator for about a week. You can leave them in the Bivita or remove them to another storage container. If you leave the container out, then they will continue to grow and become micro greens.

    Rinsing your seeds and then turn to drain, what prevents the seeds from draining out?

  • Ronald

    It is best to soak the seeds for 24 hours. After the initial you drain the water through the incorporated stainless steel screen mesh that is connected to the silicone and stainless steel lid/base. The mesh is fine enough not to let any seeds drain out.

    Another great question, thanks

    I've done sprouts since the 1970's using just a mason jar and screen top. What is the benefit of purchasing a specialized product for doing this?

    Hi Sarah, then you can probably answer some of these questions better than I could with such extensive experience sprouting. I am sure I could learn from you. However, let me try to answer your question. It is about design and function, This particular product not only won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in Europe, it also won the 2017 International Houseware Association's Global Innovation award for Best Design in the Kitchenware Category. The base is used to catch the excess water so it won't drip on your cabinet, the gasket has airflow channels and a stainless mesh to keep your sprouts fresh. It is very easy to rinse the seeds also, just add water and shake and the mesh allow the water to drain quickly and easily without losing any seed, the put back on to the drip tray, and your done!

    Couldn't be easier. Plus it looks great sitting on your counter! Lots of ways to get from point A to point B, but the Bivita does it in style.

    Thanks for your question.
