Big projects have humble beginnings . That little speck of green will grow into an entirely new liverwort plant... if properly taken care of. Although our liverworts show weed-like properties, allowing it to grow vigorously in soil or artificial media, we need to experiment to figure out where they find a happy home in our lab. These samples here were slated to live on the windowsill where ample light can help their growth. Yet on these hot summer days, there's a question of how well they can proliferate in the sun. . Members of our community took the initiative and are hard at work creating an incuabtor that could properly control the environment and optimize the growth of our plants. . . . #openplant #diy #biotech #plantbiology #weed #community #sciart #art#artist #scientist #science #wearescience #scientistswhoselfie #scientific #scienceandart #thescicommunity #scicomm #universe #art #artworks #breakingbarriers #buildingbridges #sciencelife #studentlife #stem #instascience #sciencerules #becausescience #scientistlife #discoverunder10k #DCscicomm

Veggy curry & home made chapati tonight 😍 the perfect hangover / work day pick up meal. Cooked it coming back from a long day and had a bath before eating it 💆 just what I needed after a very emotional weekend. The curry 🍛 has onions, carottes, tomatoes, coral lentils, chickpeas, spices, coconut milk, soy sauce and plenty of pepper. Served it with fresh tomatoes, basil, a splash of lemon and chaptis made with just semi whole wheat and water 💁 #foo#foodpics #pictureoffood #instafood #instapic #eatclean #healthy #vegetarian #delicious #happiness #student #studentfood #studentlife #easy #diy #musttry #food #foodporn #lunch #homemade #fresh #whatsonmyplate #whatvegetarianseat #vegan #whatveganseat #curry #chapati #dinner #chickpeas #tomato
