The soil used in flowerpots is perfect soil for growing wheatgrass. Good black quality soil should be used. Add manure to the soil; the ratio should be about 70% soil and 30% manure. Make certain the no chemical fertilizer or other chemicals are added to the soil.
Ceramic or plastic pots are good for growing wheatgrass. The pots can be circular, square, or rectangle and 40 x 30 cm.

Spraying magnetized water in pots yields the most effective result for growing wheatgrass. The water should be kept in contact with the 3000 gross power magnets for at least 20 hours. Magnets should be placed at the north and south sides of the cup, container.
Fill soil to the top of the pot, leaving about 1 inch at the top. Sprouted seeds should be spread on top and covered with a thin layer of soil or paper towel. Sprinkle water over the soil or paper towel. Wait about two days and plant the remaining 1/4 seeds, continue this process for about seven days, planting every two days.
Once the wheatgrass has grown about 7 to 10 inches in length it should be cut. The pot grown on the first day should be ready to cut around the 8th or 9th day. The wheatgrass grown on the 2nd day should be ready on the 10th day and so on. Cut the grass as close to the soil as possible without cutting away any roots. Next wash the grass and allow it to dry on a towel, refrigerate or juice it. The pot should be dried in the sunlight before reuse.
