To grow mongo seeds:
As mongo seeds grow best in the dark, it is a good idea to find a container that has a lid. For example, use a tea pot or casserole dish.
Around 1 ounce of beans produces 1 cup of sprouts. After selecting the beans, rinse them and immerse them in water. Try using four times as much volume of water as there are beans, and make sure the water is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit as they grow best in warm conditions.
After 8 to 16 hours, take the beans and rinse them before placing them in the sprouter, which is the container. Place a layer of beans across the bottom and cover with a damp paper towel. Sprinkle more water on them after 4 hours, and then rinse again and cover with an inch of water.
It sometimes takes four of five days for mongo beans to sprout fully, so repeat the process on days three, four and five if necessary.
