First time posting here, but I hope ya guys like this.
Kanzure from the irc suggested that I begin my diybio journey by
playing with hydroponics. Broke as I may be I whipped out a dirt
cheap hydro system.
(i have since wrapped electrical tape around the jar so light dosnt
hurt its little roots!)
I fashioned two straws together and taped one of the ends off; I then
pricked the taped end with a pin so I had an improvised pump. I don't
know how ofter I need to give my spider plant oxygen, but hopefully
this solution works.
The rest of the project was run of the mill as far as hyrdo goes
except, I used a mason jar instead of a large container.
I am hoping this project will find itself as an article for the Garage
Bio Mag. I think that there should be a teacher/kids section in the
magazine on every issue. I am very new to biology and dont understand
half of what people are talking about, so from a beginners prospective
there needs to be something for us noobs.
It wasnt my intention.. but I think this is a great classroom project
to teach kids about biology. The best bit that it costs ~35 cents,
which any teacher would adore.
