Re: I’m growing more MOLD than WHEATGRASS!!!

Holographic, hello!

With regards to the "gravel tray" you mention in your post, is there actual gravel in it (i.e., rounded pebbles, maybe?) that are usually in gravel trays, or is it just an empty tray, more like a cache pot type of affair but that you fill with water?

And if it's just an empty tray, how far up do you fill? I have had the problem where I used that approach, but since I use sprouting trays as you see in most people's growing situations, the roots actually rested in the water and I had a root rot-type of problem occur ...

Thank you! Your solution sounds good but just worried on how to fix it so I don't get root rot again. Like other shere, I've been desperate but I've been trying, unsuccesssfully, to grow wheatgrass for over 10 years with no real luck!

Just when I finally had something that seemed to work at least partially well, I ran into the old dreaded fungus gnats issue (though all these years I thought they were fruit flies!! Fungus gnats I finally found out!). And that's even when I'm not using any soil! I use 50:50 peat moss:perlite and still!

But one problem at a time. If I can get the watering issue fixed (root rot) perhaps the rest will follow ...

Thank you!
