I wanted to post this sort of time-lapse so that you can have a good view of what has changed from the time I started in June till now three months later.
Over the past quarter I've had many plants die, due to my lack of a green thumb, but I still have a few pulling their weight. My original plants started were: one green onion, oregano, tomato, greek basil, and a red bell pepper. I lost the green onion, oregano and recently my red bell. I would say that the cause of death for all of them was due to water; too much water leading to root rot.
Others that I have planted were the green bell pepper, jalapeno, sweet banana pepper and duckweed. Unfortunately I lost my jalapeno to root rot. The duckweed didn't have the right conditions.
The tomato and basil I would say have tripled in size from then till now and have been doing very well.
