I'm making a "device" to plant some vegetables, and I would find more than useful to know what growth/time equation plants follow. It is linear?, or do some plants growth exponentially?.

Not sure where to ask this question, any links will be appreciated.

    This question needs much clarification - different plants grow at different rates, so not knowing which plant makes it practically impossible to answer, and all plants grow only as well as the conditions they're growing in - in other words, if they're growing in unsuitable soil or don't get enough root room/light/feed/air/water, then different results will occur. – Bamboo Mar 10 '14 at 13:27
  • Fair enough, I'm going to grow the plants in an hydroponic controlled environment, so expect maximum growth without any problems. About the different plants growing at a different rate, I'm not talking about the relative speed between plants, I can manage that, but the relative speed in their own growth life. To make it simpler, do plants grow X cms/day or do their growth depends on their stage?. – Artemix Mar 10 '14 at 13:54
  • As I don't know whether Plant X is a carrot, Livingstone daisy or a tree fern, its still impossible to answer. – Bamboo Mar 12 '14 at 16:50
  • Lettuce for example. – Artemix Mar 12 '14 at 22:29
