Noobie Lettuce Raft Problems
Hi there, I am currently attempting to grow "Green Deer Tongue" lettuce in a raft under a couple of high output T5's growing using Pure Blend Vegetative nutrient solution.
My lettuce is looking very thin and tender...
This is my first attempt at growing anything since i grew beans in wet napkins in kindergarten. LOL
this is my guesses as to what the problem could be:
- wrong variety of lettuce to grow hydroponically
- lights were initially too little and too far away (corrected this recently by adding a second T5 and placing them closer to the plans)
- bubbles from air stone not getting consistent coverage
- plants grown in jiffies were put into the system too soon (no roots were sticking out)
any advice is appreciated.
