If you use a colander, be sure to use a thin muslin or even thin cotton cloth to keep the seeds covered and to retain dampness. I sometimes use paper towels. My husband keeps stealing my sprouting cloths for general cleaning, sigh! I only sprout until I see the shoots are of the same length as the seed. My husband has a hard enough time with accepting that. Let's get him to used to that first, is my objective.
