I don't see any soil....
This is what the write said she did with the lettuce to start it--so you are right, no soil: "After I cut off the top portion of the romaine lettuce, I am left with a “stumpy” looking end where the roots once were. I put this end in water and within a day or two new green leaves begin to grow in the center of the stump. I do not plant it in the ground again. What I do is harvest the new leaves when they are a few inches tall. These leaves are much smaller than the original leaves, but just as tasty. If the bottom area that is in the water begins to deteriorate or go soft, I then toss it out. As long as new leaves are growing, just keep it in water, and change that water every day or two to keep things fresh and bacteria free."
Just started one today! Super excited about this.
