Daniel, I agree about the daffodils.  Very attractive.

BB, I enjoy seeing the process you use to grow lettuce indoors. The plants look healthy and very appetizing, except for the wilt that you point out. I think the only leaves affected are the older leaves, and they may just be older and tired. Or, they may have an infection with a disease, usually molds caused by too much moisture, or a virus.

Use keywords to search for identifying, treating, and preventing diseases and pests in plants, i.e. 

"hydroponics, lettuce, diseases, pests."

Article 6-1 Soiless Salad

One remedy is to plant seed varieties that have resistance to hydroponics grown lettuce diseases.

I would simply pull off the affected leaves and dispose of them. The others should be healthy and delicious if washed under cold running water.

P.S. this is my first grow, so I'm a novice at this kind of gardening.

Hi everyone,
Are there any indoor hydroponics growers here? My husband and I recently set up an indoor growing station and are using the Kratky method. Right now we’ve got romaine, greenhouse mix lettuce, spinach and basil growing. We were pleasantly surprised at how fast the lettuces took off. I’m keeping a growing journal and taking pics regularly. Everything was looking great 3 days ago, but today there are brown spots on some of the romaine leaves, and I think I’m in mourning, lol. I’m posting some pics that show the growth stages from 3/11-4/5 and a couple from today of the brown spots. I think it may be a mold of some kind, but haven’t been able to determine for sure. Anyone have experience with this, advise or ideas? Do you think it’s okay to eat the romaine after removing the affected leaves? Thanks for any input you might have! *We're now thinking this may be rust.
