Any idea what I'm missing that would cause the stems of everything I grow, from lettuce to beans, to be really fragile and frail?
Bean is running all over the place and I'm training to a string lattice but if I'm not really careful, the stems snap very easily.
Also, sprouts are very weak and most of the time just lay over then regrow upwards with a loop of stem acting as support on the gravel instead of the stem embedded in the gravel...

Some mineral or something?

How old is your system? Hows your sun light?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's indoor without enough light. Sounds like leggy plants.

They grow like mad. I have a large nickel metal hydrid (spelling?) grow light and also a 400watt equivalent flouresent light over the 4 foot square grow bed. The leaves all look healthy, dark green, only a bit of yellow on the older leaves on the bean plants. When I say they grow like mad, I mean almost a foot in length each day for the beans and I get handfuls of lettuce every day and still losing ground on them, going to have to bundle up some for neighbor, hehe.
