This Living Lettuce 3 Pack contains 3 different types of hydroponic lettuce.
At Verdegreens they grow lettuce, leafy greens, herbs, tomatoes, and cucumbers using a hydroponic method. Nutrients and beneficial organisms are added to filtered water in a recirculating system. This method has no waste or runoff and uses up to 90% less water than conventional farming. They find it to be a great method for year round production of leafy green plants. Hydroponics also allows for a much denser concentration of plants than is possible in field grown crops. They utilize insect screen to keep out pests and employ predatory insects when necessary. Hydroponics isn't the perfect method for all vegetables but it is a fantastic way to grow tremendous amounts of nutritiously dense food in smaller spaces.
