I'm not sure if I am doing something wrong, but it is difficult to see the root system of the plants due to the "fogging" up of the inside of the tubes. I have tried to go longer without watering the plants to cut back on the condensation, but I don't want to kill the plants from lack of water. Also, unless you plant the seeds closer to the side of the tube, it is hard to see anything. I will continue to experiment with this kit until I can get it right. The idea is great and I'm sure with a few more attempts, I'll have a fantastic view of the root systems as these plants grow.
