Day 1: May 18, 2011

We began our process of building a deep water culture hydroponics system.  It is designed to hold twelve cup evenly spaced apart.  Before we planted the seeds we took a wet paper towel and placed twenty-four Baby Gem lettuce seeds to be germinated over night.  We premixed in our cups a 4:1 ration of perlite to vermiculite, this was done with the idea that the vermiculite will help to hold moisture in the cups.
