    Nope, no drops. just get the end of the lettuce and plop it in a container of water, that is full of 1 inch or less of water, depending on the size of the head!

    So just comment your results, and we can compare, see which kinds are better, what ways could work differently, etc......

    WOW! I've got romaine going in our outside garden.... but this seems much easier! I'm doing it tomorrow. We're ready to kill off a head of lettuce, anyways! Thank you so much for the tip!

    Re: lettuce lettuce everywhere!

    I found another way to grow lettuce too. I bet you could even grow the ends of the lettuce in this bottle chain. I can't wait to try this!

    This would be a great idea to do in a pot just to get the leaves.
