Plant Hospital

When I first transferred my plants into the NFT rails, most of them shot roots down and found the nutrient water.

But not all of them.  I poured cups of the nutrient water over these ones several times each day until their roots were long enough.  This worked well except for two cucumber starts.  I came home to find them looking like this:

I put them in the plant hospital (a PVC cap filled with water) until their roots grew.  It didn’t take long for them to start looking much better!
