Fast Plants® Quad Growing System
The growing system components provided by Carolina Biological Supply Company, include everything you need in order to successfully grow Fast Plants®, except for the lighting system.
Unless otherwise specified, Classroom Kits are designed for use by up to 32 students working in groups of four. Planting and growing instructions for the Wisconsin Fast Plants® Kits! are provided with purchase.
Label each cell as your teacher directs so that every student will know which plant is hers or his.
Drop one wet wick into each cell so that the tip extends 2 cm
out of the hole in the bottom.
Fill each cell halfway with slightly moistened planting mix.
Add 3 pellets of fertilizer to each cell.
Fill each cell nearly to the top with planting mix.
Drop 3 seeds on top of the planting mix.
Fill to the top of each cell with mix to just cover the seeds.
Water very gently with a
pipette or dropper until water begins to drip from each wick.
Put your group’s quad on a water reservoir as your teacher directs.
The class quads (on their reservoirs) will all be placed under fluorescent lights that are on 24 hours/day and kept 5–10 cm from the top of the plants.
Use tweezers or scissors to thin to one plant per cell when your plants have just pushed through the planting mix.
