Days to Germination:2-3 days
Hordeum vulgare. Cats adore Cat Grass! They love to munch on the blades, which help with digestion and provide vitamins, minerals and fiber. Soak seeds overnight and rinse thoroughly before sowing to speed germination. Fill a sturdy, shallow container with moist potting soil up to about an inch below the edge. Spread a thin layer of seeds over the soil, and sprinkle just a dusting of additional soil on top. Tamp the seeds and soil firmly to ensure good contact and eliminate large air pockets. Water well, and then mist the soil surface whenever it looks dry until seedlings appear. When seedlings appear, begin watering more deeply. The seedlings will grow quickly into a uniform stand of blades that your kitty will keep well-pruned until the plant is spent. Start a new pot of Cat Grass as soon as the first pot is ready for a steady supply. Height: 6" to 8".
