The mint cloner. the roots were whiter than this but i messed up the nutrients and burned them. also an easy one to make. it requires an air pump, some air stones (i used a 2 ouput pump so i used 2 stones) and a rubermaid bucket. i used some small net pots and pea gravel but it really isnt required, you could use a piece of sponge around the stem to suport it.

CHICAGO – Tomatoes hang from vines, rows of lettuce and peppers are ready to harvest, and the scent of compost fills the air. This farm isn't in rural Illinois. Herbs growing at the edge of sidewalks, traffic noise and the looming skyline identify it as City Farm, a 1-acre farm on unused city property downtown. It's a non-profit venture that sells 10,000-20,000 pounds of food each year to high-end restaurants, at its farm stand and a farmers market, and to people who buy shares of its crops. City Farm is among farms sprouting in cities across the nation to meet demand for locally grown food and to make vacant lots productive and attractive.
