Growing bean sprouts is not very difficult. What you need is a week of patience and an occasional water change.
If you don't have a lid with holes, you can cover the opening of the jar with a piece of cloth. Secure it with an elastic.
This is how you grow bean sprouts
By always rinsing with clean water you prevent bacterial growth. Rinsing keeps the beans moist enough to germinate. Do not put the container in the refrigerator. Within a week you will have a bowl full of fresh bean sprouts.
