Today I awoke to nice site. The first lotus seed to crack, and sprout, is the first to make it to the surface of the water in its new container. Its just breaking the surface now, so I'll be following it for the rest of the day. I'm hoping for a leaf to form before the weekend. As its been a little chilly by that window though, it may stunt that extra growth. There is a heating vent right below the cart, but doesn't seem to be helping.
Most of my sprouts under the lights and in the window did come up fast, but don't seem to have made ANY progress since then. Some are still as small as ever, weeks into this project. I'm thinking I may need to buy different lights?
