DIY Low Pressure Aeroponics Days 3-4-5

Day 3 (14 Feb 2018) – cotyledons on most sprouts had shed their seed husk and had already seemed to exhibit signs of phototropism so I gave them an extra shot of light up until midnight (sun has been setting around 05:30-06:00).  From now on the seedlings will be kept under a DIY light setup using (2) 100w Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) bulbs as a lightsource.  If lighting changes it will be noted in subsequent entries.

Day 4 (15 Feb 2018) – All look healthy, obvious growth


Day 5 (16 Feb 2018)- All look happy and healthy, impressive growth.  I will check for root growth tomorrow, there is potential to transplant into the Low Pressure Aeroponic (LPA) system if considerable root growth is observed.
