Bughatti lettuce

Bughatti, described as a red oak leaved lettuce which is extremely slow to bolt, is another relatively obscure variety I have grown recently.

My experience indicates that Bughatti adapts very well to indoor hydroponic growing conditions.

The seed companies are filling my mailbox with catalogs, and I continue to look for unusual varieties to grow. Several varieties are recommended for greenhouse growing, however, I have not found a single loose leaf variety that did not grow well hydroponically, either indoors, or in the greenhouse.

I avoid heading varieties, as they simply take too long to develop, so I have no experience with them.
