Just couldn't bring myself to more tank level'n today - just a bit of prep for the next session. Got an email last night from my buddy Bill about the waterboxx experiment. Seems the seeds might need another extra dose of agua to help them sprout. Headed over to the site with water in tow and dowsed all the boxxes with 1 liter each. Two out of 32 (I said 30 in a previous post) tests had seedlings sprouting already.
Brought the rest of the water home and trickled it onto some of my favorite plants at the Lab. More buds are popping out every day around here. Fetched the flash drive out of the GardenWatchCam to check the 3rd test - worked well on the Cat's Eye plant at a full day with a shot taken every 5 seconds. The camera is from http://www.brinno.com/ Caught quite a few pollinators doing their job. Next test - a multi day shoot with one frame every 5 minutes to check bloom development....video soon. 77,90,50,0,B
