Hi, Victoria! I’m Atila, like the Hun and I hope you are having a terrific time.
I’m glad to let you know that today was the first day of germination of the crops from a former experiment that is on the Green Hab (GH). I’ll attach you a pic.
|Species (common name)||Number of bowls||Number of seedlings|
Tomorrow as soon as possible I’ll update this numbers. It will be probably easier if I make a Drive with the dates and number of emerging seeds. Let me know if you have like a Data Base where I can put this data. Also, I wanted to ask Shannon how much seeds are in each pot.
Respecting my project. Half of the seeds remain at the GH; the other half is in the growing chamber. For all the seeds of the experiment, I’m using almost a Liter.
The project wants to prove that Peruvian native crops can, indeed, germinate and grow on Mars soil. I’m working with quinoa, amaranthus and mustard (as a control).
I think that’s pretty much all if you need more information about the GH I will be glad to send it to you.
Thank you for being there, Vic!
Have a beautiful night on Earth.
