Week One Update:
Last week, we invited guests of our Kickstarter Launch Party to plant a cucumber seed and enter into our Sprout Race. The planter of the first and second tallest sprouts three weeks into the race will each win a prize. We're offering the first place winner three different herb plants, which we've been caring for under one of our grow light house prototypes for the past month. Second place winner will receive a sample of our Steady State Houseplant Fertilizer.
We've been taking care of the seeds in our grow light house and watering them as needed. One week into the race, the sprouts are looking strong and healthy! Thank you for participating, everyone, and we'll share another update next week!
Week Two Update:
Two weeks into the race and we have some serious growth! When growing seedlings do not receive enough light, they look thin and spindly, growing too tall too quickly. These seedlings have been given just the right amount of light: they are not reaching for window light and are growing strong and upright. The race isn't through yet, but the front-runner for week 2 looks to be Eitan! Congratulations, Eitan!
You may notice some seeds have not germinated. This is not uncommon and can happen for a variety of reasons. In this instance, it is likely that the seeds were planted too deep or were simply not viable at the time of planting. We provide the perfect soil conditions and nutrients to allow for happy, healthy seedlings, but we know it's not guaranteed that every seed planted will successfully germinate. That's why we provide clear instructions and extra seeds in our Steady State grow kits to account for incidents that may require a re-plant or two. If at first you don't suc-seed, just try again!
Stay tuned to find out who our winners are next week!
