My ability to compose was very limited here, but an interesting growing technique.

Amazing shot and amazing technology. Is this a form of hydroponics or just a fancy irrigation system?

This shot would fit in several recent challenges. The one that comes to mind, first, is the "Patterns" challenge.

Good work.

Cal

Thanks Cal. Yes, it is a form of hydroponics in an experimental growth lab. I grow lettuce hydroponically here at home and in the classrooms at school, but my growing systems certainly don't look at neat as this!!!

Certainly one of the most interesting appoaches to growing lettuce that I've seen.

I guess what you lose in surface area you gain in volume. All that tubing to maintain is got to be a chore.

Aloha and thanks for sharing..
