Remember in grammar school when we were given birdseed, paper towels, and plastic bags? We wet the paper towels, put the seeds between two layers of them, and sealed them in the bags... and sprouts grew.
We did the same thing here the same night as we scattered the other seeds in the aquaponics tub, only with green beans & cucumbers. Today, we opened 'em up.
They grew a ton in just 6 days and rooted right into the paper towels, which was pretty funny. So into the rock bed they went!
Meanwhile, we noticed yesterday... leaves! Leaves on the shoots in five days!
And today, they're just going crazy! A ton of growth.
And if you're wondering about the fish, we're down to five, as we lost three while the system stabilized, but those five are doing well.
