Growing wheat grass is a simple process. The seeds must be soaked in water for around 12-hours before planting in a starter solid mixture. The seeds typically sprout up within 10-days, although it is recommended to that one must harvest the plant when it becomes at least 7 inches tall. People who sow wheatgrass seeds must take good care of it against mold that can crop up when seeds are still in the germination phase.

Moreover, there are individual reports that describe extended survival among people with cancer and tumor shrinkage who followed the wheatgrass diet.
