Drip Irrigation

For large installations, we recommend using automatic drip irrigation. 1/4” emitter lines fit inside the watering tank, emitting water evenly down to roots and reservoir. Supply lines hide neatly in the irrigation supply channel located on the left and right sides of every wall planter.  

More about the Plants...

  • Temperature: Lettuce is adapted to cool growing conditions with the optimum temperatures for growth between 60 to 65 degrees F. Some varieties, such as Romaine, are much more tolerant of heat.
  • Light Outdoors: These are cool weather crops and will thrive in partial shade. If the leaves show signs of wilting it could be exposed to too much direct sunlight. 
  • Light Indoors: All types of lettuce will bolt to seed when exposed to far red light from grow lights, so avoid using red grow lights that are for the flowering/blooming stage as well as incandescent lighting. Warm white and cool white fluorescent/CFL lights are the only artificial light that should be used with this plant. Optimal exposure is 51 watts per square foot for twelve or more hours per day.
  • Water: The key to lettuce production is supplying moderate but almost constant water, especially during hot weather. 
  • Soil: The soil should also be rich in nitrogen and potassium. Strive for a pH of 6.0 to 6.8.

There are four main kinds of lettuce, each listed below. There is no wrong choice among these delicious garden greens. 

  • Butterhead lettuce is the largest and arguably the best-flavored group of lettuce varieties. You will see tender leafs form a tightly folded head with delicate buttery flavor. Butterhead leaves can be harvested at just about any time in their development.
  • Looseleaf lettuce seeds are fast-growing and won’t form tight heads. This type comes in varieties comprising a rainbow of colors from chartreuse, deep and lime green to bronzy reds. Space seeds 6" apart so you can cut individual leaves at any stage and the plants will keep producing. Looseleaf leaves can be harvested at just about any time in their development.
  • Romaine lettuce contain elongated, thick leaves which are crisp and savory, and hold these qualities well after harvest. Very heat resistant, the plants are slow to bolt; ideal for either fall or spring. Space romaine lettuce seeds 12" apart. Romaine takes 75 to 85 days to mature.
  • Crisphead lettuce contain curved, overlapping leaves which form crispy, firm round heads. Inside, creamy white leaves are tightly packed. The deep green outer leaves are also delicious. Crisphead varieties can take 70 to 100 days to mature.
