View Full Version : Thinning out seedlings?

02-17-2007, 11:30 AM
Hello. First post here. :) I'm just getting started with hydroponic gardening.

I'm using 6 rapid rooters. 7 days ago I directly planted 3-4 lettuce seeds in each rapid rooter (according to the directions on the packet, which said to plant 3-4 seeds per inch).

The seedlings are growing very well -- almost too well. Looking at the directions in the FAQ, I'm thinking I should have just planted one seed per rapid rooter. Is that right? Should I thin out the seedlings now to just one seedling per rapid rooter?

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind. Taken care of.

I've heard of some commercial lettuce growers placing 3-5 seeds in one cube to have an instant salad mix.
