tomatogeek@gmail.com DIY hydroponic garden. This is my vertical garden. Started with the idea of getting the most production out of a small space. By growing in the vertical styrofoam pots, you insulate the roots of the plant keeping them warm in winter and cool in the summer. By planting in coco coir, you have a completely nutreal media free of alkanlinity and PH; coco coir is necessary when using these vertical pots. Currently, I have 120 Florida 91 tomato plants (please google Florida 91 to learn more about this remarkable heat and disease resistant tomato developed by the University of Florida). Each plant has produced almost 10 pound of tomatos since the end of December 2008 and are still producing tomatos expected to go through the summer. We have seedlings available to ship to you within the US only. Please email me at tomatogeek@gmail.com and let me know how many you want and I will send you a quote. Seeds are also available. You can go to ebay and bid or buy there or you can just email me at tomatogeek@gmail.com with the amount of seeds you would like; payment is accepted through paypal only at this time. If you want pots or coco coir, I can also send you a quote just let me know how many you would like again at tomatogeek@gmail.com ; this can be shipped worldwide. Hydroponics is not a new development. Has been around almost since the beginning of history. That wonder of the ancient world known as the Hanging Gardens of Babylon was an exercise in hydroponics and rice has been grown hydroponically for centuries. Today, hydroponics is used in a variety of settings. Whenever the soil is unavailable, hydroponic gardening seems to appear. Wildcatters offshore oil rigs grow their own tomatoes. Chefs of […]

    How do you overcome the gradual problems of using the hydroponic systems in growing a wide variety of crops. You've got an abundant garden! I would be pleased if you could lend me some ideas and tactics on how to grow such crops in a productive way. Nice video!

    Thanks a lot for your movie.
    Also I have some tactics to grows up to 10 times the plants, by 50 % the time, with more healthy plants, while the "fish" do everything…”

    Great video, very clear message on using hydroponic gardens. I have seen them in action and they do work great but requires a reasonable amount of work. I've created a slightly different garden where I grow from compost bags with drip tape set to a timer. This allows me to leave my garden without worrying about crop damage. Also I don't have to weed or feed or water just harvest. This type of approach is good for those who may not have space for a garden. If you get time check it out
