These unique sprouter bags don’t clutter up your kitchen. Plus, they let you experiment with growing sprouts before investing in more expensive equipment like a Broccoli Sprouting Machine or the Freshlife Automatic Sprouter.
In fact, you can grow a ton of these nutrient-dense greens in a minimal amount of space. (Microgreens contain 4 to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts.)
As you can see, these “urban sprouter” bags fit perfectly on a windowsill. (And, if you need more space, consider a suction cup window shelf.

By the way, each pop up bag makes a small salad or multiple meal toppings.
Note: You can get a pop-up microgreens kit with different types of seeds. For example, broccoli, cat grass, corn, kale or assorted sprouts. That said, many people like the broccoli microgreens because they contain sulforaphane and provide numerous health benefits.
