I have had 3 lettuce pods from my very first order.
None of them sprout for 2 months and I see only Moss…
The basil and tomatoes are looking look ok and the tomatoes are finally showing up (still pale for now). (The plants are sprawling on the sides, rather than growing upwards, but that’s for another topic later.)
I’ve decided to throw out the 3 unsprouting ones.
How can I make the lettuce sprout and grow? I’m in Singapore. What are the optimal conditions? I have 3 new pods with me to start over.
Why did none of them sprout? It kinda feels like throwing money away when none of them are sprouting…
If nothing is sprouting - contact the Click & Grow support directly. They will send you new ones. Maybe yours lost seeds during transport…
Lettuce needs a bit lower temperatures. I would start with some Basil or thyme in Singapore. And then move towards lettuce and fruits.
We would love to see a picture of your tomato though.
Oh - I didn’t realise we could contact Click & Grow when nothing sprouts. I will do that now.
I started out with Basil, Tomato and Lettuce. Then current subscription that I’ve forgotten to update gave me new pods of Basil, Dwarf Pea and Lettuce, so I’m hoping to have better success with Lettuce this round.
How low should the temperature be? I actually tried to water them with water cooled from the refrigerator (not the freezer) on Month 3 to see if there’s any hope of getting anything.
With both the old and new lettuce pods, I see some round nodules in the soil. Is that normal too?
Unfortunately Green Lettuce is heat sensitive plant and germination is often inhibited by hot temps. The best temperature range is 64 to 72 °F (18 to 22°C), max 75°F (24°C) but I guess it is difficult to provide in Singapure. Though, we have experienced that Romaine Lettuce is a bit more durable, it is worth to try out!
What is the average temperature now?
Definitely tell support about the failure with lettuce pods!
