Where it all started - Generation 6
Generation 6 - November 2015
Moving on swiftly, we learned that elevating the roots was not that important. Laying the grow media directly on the 10" x 20" seeding tray provided good conditions as long as the media retained water. We tried different types of media, thicknesses and densities in order to optimize yield. We learned that keeping the humidity dome on for 1-2 days after germination prevented the young seedlings from drying out and improved yield. At this point in time, growth was consistent in enough to begin to collect data and change other factors such as light color, distance, nutrients, pH, media density and thickness.
