I tried to grow wheat grass indoors and I loved the look but it died in three weeks! How long should it last? I'm looking for a permanent plant (or at least something I only have to change once or twice a year, not every few weeks). I may have over watered since they're in zinc troughs without drainage. Can I make grass last? What's the best kind? I alternate the troughs every couple of days between the top of a bookshelf (indirect light) and a kitchen window.
It does sound like they may be overwatered and this is killing the plant. Make sure that the grass has plenty of drainage, maybe by drilling holes in the bottom of the troughs or by placing pebbles under the soil so that the water will not stay logged in the soil. The grass also needs lots of light. A bright window will help, but if you still see the grass not thriving, you can supplement light by using a lamp with a fluorescent bulb nearby.
So to answer your question as to how long indoor grass will last, it should last as long as most houseplants do if given the conditions it likes--several years in fact.
I am planning an open house for Christmas. How long will it take wheat grass to be 6" high in indoor containers?
I've never had much success growing wheat grass. If you can't get it to grow, why don't you just buy what you need from the healthfood store.

I planted winter wheat last September in our 20' x 30' vegetable garden and it grew very nicely. It's now covered with snow, so I don't know what is there. I grew it for soil improvement. In spring, do I till it?
In spring, winter wheat can definitely be tilled into the garden soil.
For more information about winter wheat, please visit the following link:
I planted a small plot of spring wheat [16 sq. ft.] and it is now ready to harvest and this is only the 15th of June. My question is, can I grow a 2nd crop in that same space and, if so, what do I feed it? That space had cherry tomatoes in it last year. Thanks
You should be able to replant and harvest in the remaining growing season.
You also could plant Winter Wheat going into the fall.
Wheat needs Nitrogen.

How to keep the fungus off? During the soil-less growing of wheat seeds at home, usually I find black or white fungus. I want to know how to get rid of it and keep the roots white. Thank you
Watering from the base of the Wheatgrass will help.
Also having some air circulation.
