So today after spring break we found that 3 of the 6 cups have pretty healthy plants growing in them. Another one of the cups has a plant that looked like it started growing but is dying. The last two cups have absolutely nothing in them. Finally we found that our system was no longer dripping. We checked and discovered it was only the drip emitters that got clogged (with what appeared like algae), but we got it working again. Some of the emitters leaking out of the hole in the hose we reinforced them with tape to fill up the hole better. Also our system was no longer leaking at all so the trash bags are doing their jobs
. Hopefully the emitters will hold up from now on otherwise we may have to replace them, which is fine because I bought them in a pack of 10.

Since Your last time posting and changing things have any of the three plants with out anything changed and started growing? Can’t wait to see some peppers!
I would really like to see a full view of your system. I also suggest that you describe your system a little more clearly. Tell us what it is made of and the overall dimensions.
The pepper plant looks great!
I must say, I’m diggin’ the drip system! It’s very daring and original (from what I’ve seen around the room at least). I really hope you can grow some type of pepper. Would definitely make harvest day spicy!
