Living Butter Lettuce - can this be done at home??

cstout | Mar 30, 201309:18 AM     19

I just purchased a head of butter lettuce in a sealed plastic dome for 3.89 in the produce department. It had a brown glob of root attached to the lettuce. Here is the description off the label.

Bella Verdi www.bellaverdifarms.com
Hydroponically grown in greenhouse.
Pesticide free with roots on & no dirt.
Living lettuce, for the ultimate in taste & freshness

Another container purchase earlier was from www.LiveGourmet.com

How in the world do they grow this lettuce? Is the whole thing started in the plastic container or what? Does anyone know how to grow lettuce at home in this manner?

I never have any luck with growing lettuce - too many varmints/pests, too hot, too dry......you get the picture.
