Zinnia Flowers Starting to Grow on the International Space Station

I wonder what these flowers will look like. Growing in 0g is critical to exploration and these developments help terrestrial small gardeners as well.

Zinnia flowers are starting to grow in the International Space Station’s Veggie facility as part of the VEG-01 investigation. Veggie provides lighting and nutrient supply for plants in the form of a low-cost growth chamber and planting “pillows” to provide nutrients for the root system. via NASA http://ift.tt/1mApUtZ
