Cereals in pots?

10 years ago

I'm new to this forum so I may be posting in the wrong place but this is the closest I could find. I have planted wheat and barley in pots to try to get grain from them. I got the wheat from transplants I dug out of my garden (sprouted from the straw I tilled into the ground) and the barley from Europe. I also planted a handful of rye in a plot of soil about a 4x4 plot. They are all growing, but the wheat and barley are now growing very slowly. They are inside and don't get much sunlight, so that is probably part of the problem but if someone has good advice for growing grains inside I would love to hear them. Also is it plausible to get a few heads of grain from my plants? Thanks guys
