Salad update

I’ve got the seedlings transplanted to the coco-coir filled net pots which are suspended in coffee cans full of homemade hydroponic solution. I need to get some real hydroponic fertilizer, but for now I’m using distilled water and some Dollar Store plant food, Epsom Salts, and calcium acetate that I made by dissolving eggshells in vinegar. We’ll see how it goes. Interestingly, the Salad Bowl lettuce (the two on the right in the pic below) has caught up to the other plants, even though it was sprouted a week later. Maybe that’s because the Spinach and Mesclun were sprouted in dirt, and the Salad Bowl was sprouted in coco-coir that was soaked with the homemade hydroponic solution.
