Today’s blog post will cover how to get your plants up and growing. To help get my sprouts started, I used these Rapid Rooter plugs.
The first thing I had to do was decide what to seeds to plant. I settled on tomatoes, peppers, and flowers for my girlfriend Katie.
I also selected romaine, lettuce blend, and Italian large leaf basil for my hungry sulcata tortoise, Rocky.
Using the Rapid Rooter plugs is super easy. All you do is put about 2 seeds about 1/4 inch deep in the premade hole. Then you pinch the hole closed, and add about 2 cups water to the bottom of tray.
Then soon enough I had my very first sprouts. Every 2-3 days I added more water, making sure the cubes stayed moist but not drenched. Once the sprouts’ roots are poking through the bottom of the plug, they are ready to be transplanted into the Foody tower. I’ll post about getting the nutrient and ph levels right next!
