    Use thermometer to check on the temperature

    In order to place wheatgrass in idle condition, you should place a thermometer nearby. This is to ensure that the temperature where wheatgrass is placed lies between 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Remember that if temperature drops below this, new seeds won’t germinate and the blades will wilt. On the other hand if the temperature rises from 90 degrees Fahrenheit, its’ seeds will not develop.
