I just set up the "Victorio 4-Tray Kitchen Seed Sprouter" this morning. It came with a small package of alfalfa seeds which I used for the first attempt. I put an even amount of seeds in each tray (about half a tbsp.) then stacked them up. I will need to pour 2 cups of water twice a day, rotate the trays and empty the bottom. Within in a few days they should be sprouting!
