Mesculan Seeds Sprouted

March 7, 2015

Moved 3 plants to the Tower Garden.  I’m leaving the others out to see how well they’ll grow compared to ones in the Tower Garden.


March 15

The plants in the Tower Garden have grown much larger than the plants out of the Tower Garden.  The sweet spot  (at least for Mesclun Spicy Mix) seems to be placing the seedlings in the Tower Garden after 2 weeks.


Plant that was 2 weeks out of the Tower Garden is now 3 weeks old.
