Hi Plant-eders,

We're gearing up to start a new first-year bio course in the fall and
one of the labs will be on plant mineral nutrient requirements.  As I
understand it, students will design and test several nutrient mixtures
on several species of plants with the goal being to develop a more
'cost-effective' mixture (a fictitious company needs to cut costs and
each stock solution will have a price...  I didn't develop the lab but I
think it sounds like fun).

My question is - do any of you run large intro lab exercises anything
like this?  We would like to talk with you about setup logistics before
we invest in too many carboys and bottles...
