How to Grow Lettuce Indoors


Detective Le Plant has a plan for getting lettuce to grow indoors! Let's see if his
plan works!

heavy-duty lock-type freezer


bag (pint or quart size)

lettuce seeds

water

potting soil

Fill a plastic bag 3/4 of the way with good moist potting soil (a pot may also
be used).

Take a little pinch of seeds and sprinkle on the soil surface.

Cover the seed lightly with soil.

Water seed with light spray. Close the top of the bag, but leave one inch
open. Set in a sunny window and get ready for that salad!

When you see little green shoots, open the bag so that the plants have
room to grow and can breathe.

Your plants need attention and care. That means you must water them properly
and make sure your plants get enough light.
Tips on Growing Lettuce Indoors

Ask your teacher or an adult family member to help you


cut off the corners of the bag to allow for drainage.

Fill the bag 3/4 of the way with moistened potting soil.

Sprinkle seed on the surface. Don't use too much as plants will start to
crowd.

Lightly cover with soil. Only 1/8 inch is enough.

Water lightly so all of the soil is moist and you get good seed-to-soil
contact.

Zip the bag closed leaving about one inch open to let air in.

Write the date you planted the seed on the outside of the bag.

Place the bag in a sunny window or under a grow light.

When germination starts, open the bag. Keep it in a sunny location, and
water as needed to keep it moist.

Lettuce will grow fast in warm temperatures, but it is a lot better when
grown under cooler conditions (65-70 degrees F).

As plants start to get large and grow together, start cutting and using it in
a salad.
