wheat grass seeds?

My wife would like to grow some wheat grass as decoration for inside the house. I've lookd at a number of local garden centers and nurseries but haven't found this stuff. Can anyone help me out? Thanks in advance.

I get my wheatgrass seeds at the natural foods co-op. They go by the name "wheatberries." Start them out by soaking & rinsing as you would for other edible sprouts, but when the root is about 1/8 " long, spread the sprouts on about 1" of new potting soil in a container with drainage holes. Cover with light plastic & keep in the dark until the grass is about 1" high, then remove the cover & set the container in a sunny spot.

You can also buy kits from the pet store, where it goes by the name "cat grass." The grocery store might have some in the produce section too.

Mow your wheatgrass every week or so to keep it from getting scraggly. It is best at 2-4" tall. Tastes amazingly sweet.
