The testimonies received on germinators and sprouted seeds overlap on certain points:
- difficulties in changing one’s eating habits
- lack of time or rigour to manage a germinator on a regular basis
- personal organisation a priori incompatible (absences during the week, movement …)
- particular difficulties in germinating certain sensitive seeds (sunflower, buckwheat …)
- too high temperature problems (in summer for example)
- presence of midges, moulds … leading to the abandonment of seeds sprouted
Principle of operation
The Easygreen germinator maintains humidity within the growth enclosure and the misting and regular aeration of the seeds guaranteeing an unequaled freshness compared to a manual germinator. No other germinator ensures the aeration of the seeds and the evacuation of the heat related to the phenomenon of growth.Programming is carried out using a mechanical programmer which ensures between 5 to 8 daily misting cycles, lasting 15 to 20 minutes. In total this represents a daily consumption of water of between 2 and 3 litres, much lower than the quantities of water used to rinse the same quantity of seeds manually. The consumption of the device in operation (2 to 3 hours per 24 hours is 18 watts).
Daily useUsing your germinator comes down to:
- monitoring the water level in the tank, knowing that if you forget, the fogger will continue to operate without damage, it will then only provide ventilation. This monitoring can be eliminated by installing an automatic filling system.
- eat the seeds that have sprouted and replace them with dry seeds
- clean your Easygreen once a week with a cloth, and 2 or 3 times a year for more thorough cleaning. Note that the Easygreen has an automatic cleaning cycle which can be implemented with white crystal vinegar.
General Operating Principle
The water contained in the 5 litre tank is sucked in by venturi effect which will have an energising and oxygenating effect (see video above).
The “cool” water will then be mixed with a filtered air flow and the mist thus generated will be vaporized on the surface of the seeds placed in the growth enclosure. Residual water is collected at the front of the device and is not recirculated. This rinse water is loaded with enzyme inhibitors, and it is important that it is discarded.
A vantages of EasyGreen
- more soaking seeds, more irrigation , reduced monitoring at least see almost zero if you use the automatic filling
- it is possible to grow some seeds difficult to succeed in a manual propagator: unshelled sunflower, unhulled buckwheat … etc – the Easygreen continues to operate during your absences , leaves, trips: there is no longer any interruption in the production of your germinated seeds
- this device has been designed to easily start a daily production of sprouted seeds, just replace the seeds consumed and replace the tray.
- tall seeds have perfectly clean and pure water , which is not the case with other automatic germinaters which “recycle” water and enzyme inhibitors. Those cis are released by the seeds.
- reasonable water consumption: 2 to 3 litres per day by choosing 8 daily cycles.
- The Easygreen has been the subject of numerous improvements since its creation, making it very efficient and economical to use.
A uy the EasyGreen
Easygreen has been sold for 20 years in 32 countries around the world, including in a scientific base located in Antartica. It is probably the best germinator in the world.
By purchasing the Easygreen you are making an important gesture to improve the quality of your daily diet, you will consume food produced in your own kitchen, with unequaled freshness and vitality.

Easygreen comparison – other automatic germinators:
Other more economical germinators exist on the European market. Easygreen differs from them on five essential points which condition the success of your sprouted seeds. If you are considering buying another system, find out about these points:
- The Easygreen does not use a fragile pump operating under pressure but a fogger which sucks the water by a natural spiral movement (see video below), thus improving the subtle quality of the water.
The motor (18 watts) of the fogger is placed well above the tank and therefore does not heat the water contained in it by contact. In addition, the misting principle lowers the temperature of the water if it is high, which makes it possible to refresh the seeds. The warmer or warmer the irrigation water, the more the development of mould or rot is favoured.
- Easygreen uses fresh water for each watering and not recycled water. The seeds release enzyme inhibitors during germination and it is essential that these undesirable substances can be evacuated and not put back into circulation.
- The germinated seeds are aerated 6 to 8 times a day. The ventilation of the seeds is a fundamental point, this allows them to breathe in the best conditions and to evacuate the heat released by the germination process. The absence of ventilation facilitates the appearance of mould.
- The Easygreen has an automatic cleaning system for the enclosure
- The roots of the germinated seeds remain confined in the removable trays which are easy to clean.
Main features of the Easygreen in 9 points
1. The seeds generate heat during germination. They need to be ventilated and cooled to avoid the development of mold or bacteria. EasyGreen uses patented technology that allows the application of fresh air and water droplets to the surface of the seeds, thereby ensuring their ventilation and watering. In reality, the seeds need little water but large amounts of air. Traditional germiners provide a lot of water but often do not allow regular renewal of the air in the growth enclosure.
2. The growth inhibitors present in the seeds are natural defense substances against diseases and insects. These inhibitors are released into the water when the seeds are watered. If you reuse this water, you re-water your seeds with inhibitors. EasyGreen uses clean, energized and fresh water. It is important to keep in mind that your sprouted seeds contain 80% water. As such, it is important to use quality water. All the rinsing water used by the EasyGreen is definitively drained outside the germinator and is not used.
3. Controlling the humidity is essential for the vigor of your sprouted seeds. EasyGreen uses a 96-position programmer that allows the user to fine-tune his germinator according to the local climate.
4. The EasyGreen tank allows people who wish to add organic nutritive solutions , such as liquid kelp algae for example, at the end of wheatgrass growth, when the root network of seeds is sufficiently developed. So you can choose to grow your wheatgrass with or without support.
5. The tank can also periodically receive solutions such as crystal vinegar or hydrogen peroxide for complete cleaning and disinfection, carried out automatically.
6. Conventional germinators often require pre-soaking the seeds. With the EasyGreen, simply place your dry seeds on the trays, the germinator takes care of everything: soaking, rinsing, misting, oxygenation, ventilation and drainage of rinsing water are done in a simple and automatic way.
7. Easygreen uses a technology of dynamisation and oxygenation of water by taking the necessary water samples by venturi effect. The water rises in a hyperbolic funnel-shaped conduit forming a vortex. Beyond the qualitative aspect, this process, associated with the fineness of the misting (droplets of 6 microns) ensure faster germination of 15 to 40% compared to conventional methods.
8. The trays can receive a substrate if you wish, for your wheat grass or sunflower crops for example.
9. Easygreen is versatile and can germinate seeds, young shoots or barley or wheat grass.
Here is a personal comparison. The same seeds were placed on the same day, in the same room and under the same conditions in:
- right image: a “classic” manual germinator which was rinsed twice a day by hand for 3 days
- left image : Easygreen which mists and rinses the seeds 8 times a day with energized waterThis is just a result of the speed of growth, taste and freshness not yet on the screen!

Regarding the principle of revitalisation of water by vortex (vortex) used by the Easygreen, you can watch this video “The Masters of water” (2/2), broadcast on the ARTE channel, which evokes the work of researcher Victor Schauberger:
