It still amazes me that a plant can look like it isn't doing anything and then through the magic of hydroponics you can see the root structure growing like crazy! These plants have only been in here 2-3 weeks. The net pots first then the brown ones with herbs in them. I did not take the herbs out of their pots for several reasons: first is that I was tired of losing them to shock after uprooting, cleaning, and re-potting them. Second, the original pots fit so well in the existing holes. Third, most wouldn't get big enough to require a larger pot.
