[COLOR=Black]Bathroom cabinets sure are handy!
We had a tragedy on the 3rd day of the plants in the buckets.
Front-Left seedling dried out overnight:( I guess I didn't have the water high enough in the bucket. Other seedlings are doing good though and all water levels have been raised slightly! Also, took a little bit out of each's reservoir and poured it over the top of the cubes. Should I continue doing this, or do you think that the higher level of water should workout (6" netpot is in 1" of water)?. Also, should i raise the water every day as it dries out, or no? Im kinda stumped on what to do to get the roots to grow, seedlings have never been my thing, even in soil.

And that's all for today folks! Ill update as regularly as possible (Hey, even I have somewhat of a life.)
But feel free to leave constructive criticism, helpful comments, tips, etc, because I am still new to the Hydro scene and have A LOT to learn!
