Stunted growth

My lettuce grew rapidly for the first 6 days (2/16) and now we are on 2/21 and no new growth.  I don't understand is that normal for lettuce? I won't worry but it grew so fast and so well in the beginning. Does anyone know is this normal?

Ginger,

Ginger,

Thanks for your reply.  I have added lettuce to my c6 (classic 6) and my aerogarden 7, which seem to be growing fine sprouts already.  I will work on the ultra to cleanse the water as suggested.

Doesn't look diseased, maybe

Doesn't look diseased, maybe a bit slow.

If you're concerned, dump the reservoir and refill with fresh water, no nutes, for a few days. Lettuce absolutely hates too much nutrient.

The seed makes seed leaves pretty quickly. Then the baby plant uses energy collected by the seed leaves to make true leaves. I see those nubbins in your picture.
