How to Grow Wheat grass in Water Beads

Pour some water beads into your vase and add water to about 2/3 full. It takes way fewer than you think! My 6″ x 6″ x 6″ vase only needed about a teaspoon of beads. Let them sit for 4-6 hours. If they seem to have run out of water, add more and let them expand until they stop growing. Then drain off remaining water.

Sprinkle about 1 Tablespoon of wheat grass seeds on top

of the water beads. Place in a sunny spot and watch them

grow. And admire how beautiful the  grass looks in the


Wheat grass is the instant gratification vegetation of the

plant world. You’ll see it sprouting in a day, roots popping

in two and grass shoots coming out in three. This fully

grown vase full of wheat grass only took five days,

definitely fast enough to keep the kids’ attention.

If working with kids, quantify the growth process, you

can mark the height of the grass each day on the vase.

It’s a perfect chance to get out the ruler and teach some

math skills, too.

And let’s not forget to talk about the life cycle of a plant. This fast-paced gardening project is a great tool for talking about the stages in a plant’s life from seed to germination to pollination in flowering plants. I love these books that help tell the story of a plant’s life.
