Harvesting Lettuce grown under the Blaze-of-Blue
Farm-to-table salads in January at your local restaurants. Indoor and greenhouse hydroponics with blue-supplemented lights make this possible.
Any new hydroponic system needs a bit of troubleshooting, but this one really surprised us with its robustness. We've been checking in weekly with the greenhouse manager to make sure the nutrients, seedlings, and lights were working well together.
These Rex butterhead lettuces go from seedling to harvest in 4-6 weeks. Now we're helping the greenhouse manager grow healthier seedlings faster. You may notice the pale skinny bottom leaves in the top right image - those are the seedling leaves, struggling without supplemental light in the seed trays.
