THIS IS SO COOL!!
these tiny plants grow 4 times as fast!! (lentils about 4 days after sprouting)
and it's really easy. With some basic construction scraps you will off and running
Soon i am going to try corn on a few much smaller barges
PLEASE read on!.
and here's something cool! look@ the farthest plant to the right see how it's leaning to the sun!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
okay the materials you will need are:
1 piece of blue board foam!
#? uncooked beans!
1 fish tank or rubbermade container
(any thing with a pump and clear sides)
a ruler (or eye ball it ) it does not have to be perfect the plants will not care!!
1 thin stiff object to poke holes with
be creatative! all it has to do is make a hole for the seeds to fit snugly in.
1 pinch of miracle grow (i didn't use any but my water was all ready saturated with nutrients from decaying plants.
GO FOR IT!!!
start poking holes! start with just one and see how well the seed fits.
you may need a smaller poking device.
Better to have slightly larger holes than slightly smaller holes!!!!!!
depending on you poking device you should end up with cone shaped holes;
turn it over when you done to check
Step 3: Go CRAZY!
Experiment!! that's the purpose!
Try mini barges with small anchors like Aluminum weights and fishing line to hold them in place!
Try any thing! just go for it! You could even add a small amount of yeast to the water (plenty of co2)
Step 4: Results
Just some cool pixs of the same plant every few hours i can get a shot or two it grows crazy fast!
soon i will be doing an Instructable about growing plants in a large magnetic field!! some in a constant some in an oscillating one!
