Pea Germination

To sprout pea seeds I soaked them in water for 24 hours. I then put them in damp paper towels in a ziplock bag for two days. An amazing 100% of the seeds germinated! Now that I've transplanted them into the aeroponics system, all the plants have been planted. The next step is to build a small support structure for the pea plants (grow a couple feet tall or a couple feet along the ground if not supported). After that I need to start using sensors. I'm not sure what the concentration of nutrients is now that it's been running for a while and I'll need to know when to add more.
