    what do you think about tower gardening using aquaponics instead of chemical hydroponics??

  • James Baxter 1 year ago

    Do you really know what you are talking about?

  • Adero Prescott 1 year ago

    Thank you for doing this.

    This guy needs to choose his wording a bit more carefully I encourage anybody who is watching this is do their own research on the tower gardens. It's aeroponic, not hydroponic, and there are no synthetic chemical fertilizers used.?

    I would suggest that you investigate what the "Tower Tonic" is that is being used with the Tower garden. It is in no way, shape, or form "synthetic fertilizer". It is just minerals. Check the label. It was designed to maximize nutrition in the end product, and Tower Garden produce has been studied to see if it stacks up to garden produce. It came out as good OR better than garden produce. Why do you think this isn't organic? That is up to the grower. Pick organic seeds. The Tower Tonic is by definition inorganic as it is just MINERALS, which are inorganic. Just like the ones plants pull naturally out of the soil. Take the time, sir, to look at what Tim Blank and others are trying to do with these towers and I think you will find that we are all on the same page.?

    But john! Can't you just do organic hydro??

  • Samuel Trajano 1 year ago

    the design is what is wrong. they should be using lightsources along the tower, between each one not over the tower. like a fluorescent tube wich glows in every direction, this way 1 quarter of 4 towers get straigt light with only one tube. also the tubes are way to wide. they could be thiner, and use all the same bucket at once. that would reduce costs.?

    Thumbs up for the video, though that O'Hare system looks disgusting & extreemly cynical. I fully agree with all John says in this video. Is this tower setup at O'Hare what they call 'greenwashing' via a devious public relations campagne? In which Monsanto type companies try to show of their deadly poisons as purported to be so called 'environmentally friendly'? Would they let their children drink from those blue barrels in the back??? I think not…?

    YOUR VIDEO:(Vertical Hydroponic DIY System uses a Single Nutrient for Amazing Results) IS USING ORGANIC OCEAN SOLUTIONS AND PVC PIPE THAT LEACHES CHEMICALS INTO THE WATER. AT LEAST THE TOWER GARDEN IS FOOD GRADE PLASTIC. I GUESS IT'S UP TO THE USER TO DECIDE WHAT NUTRIENTS TO PUT INTO THE TOWER… ORGANIC OR NOT THE AERO GARDEN IS OVER $100 AND YOU HAD A VIDEO USING THAT WHICH IS A REAL BIG MISTAKE.?

  • mediherbz uk 1 year ago

    i use aeroponics with the npk raw soluble range is that range organic or not do u know??

  • Outa ThisWorld 1 year ago

    Love your videos John. A simple of correction worth mentioning, the Garden Towers are aeroponically based not hydroponic, just like the aerogardens you and your girlfriend were recommending. I have used the garden towers, the tower garden project II, the agro-towers, organic gardening as well as the Mittleider gardening technique over the years and I have to say that the best tasting and highest yielding technique by far is the Mittleider technique for gardening. I had so many tomatoes growing with this technique that it bent the 4×4 posts I had used for trellising. Just my 2 cents with of experience! Keep up the great videos.?

    I understand how you feel , I felt that way also when the tower garden first came out, but this is what I found. Have you even looked at the back of the nutrient containers?? Its all earth minerals. No synthetic fertilizers like all the rest of the hydroponic fertilizers. This system uses 90% less water than traditional gardening. Its an aeroponic unit as well. Please do your research before you make a video like this.?

    Unfortunately you do not know what you are talking about on this video. They do not use synthetic chemical fertilizers but earth-based ionic minerals, ideal for human nutrition. It is "beyond organic". Also there is no waste with tower gardens. None! This was developed by Tim Blank who spent 12 years at Epcot's Back to the Land operation, part of which he was the greenhouse manager. He worked on projects with NASA & the department of energy. Something tells me he's a bit more qualified than you to talk about aeroponic technology, not hydroponic as you mention. For optimal growing of plants, choose a tower garden!?

  • Donna Hawks 1 year ago

    Tower Garden is an aeroponic system, a variant of hydroponics. (The studies at the University of Mississippi show that plants grow better/faster with an aeroponic system.) There is no soil (soil in standard gardening simply holds the plants up). Tower Garden uses rock wool to hold the plant. In both types of gardening the plants pull the minerals out of the mineral source. In soil gardening, it is the dirt holding the minerals. In Tower Garden, the plant receives mineral nutrition from the water it drinks.?

    Interestingly, you neglected to mention that the Tower Garden is made using UV coated, food grade plastic…meaning that it won't break down quickly as regular PVC will, it won't leach harmful BPA's and other toxic chemicals into your produce and the environment, the Tower Tonic Mineral Solution is an ionic mineral blend using only 100% natural minerals and soil organisms, without the dirt. There is nothing synthetic about it.?

  • K Rad 1 year ago

    Not sure what you're basing your information on, but the Tower Gardens by Juice Plus use an all natural earth & sea mineral tonic blend. This blend was developed in partnership with Epcot & NASA specifically for the Aeroponic system to produce the highest nutritional quality produce.?

  • Christina Albetta 1 year ago

    The fertilizer is not synthetic It is A combination of natural earth minerals. You think $500 is a lot? Try buying organic produce for one year .Your "opinions" are not factual.?

  • Cosmic Carrie 1 year ago

    I have 6 of these now.

  • joanna koblanska 1 year ago

    Please get your facts straight. I would appreciate it if you remade this video. Unless you don't mind that you are sharing misinformation… I hope people who see this will take time to do their own research.
    I've been growing my greens all winter long in the tower garden and men, are they tasty! The nutrients are made with sea minerals ( I've done my research ). The plastic is food grade, which means it doesn't leach any harmful chemicals. The water is recycled, which means TG uses 10% of water needed for regular gardening. And I actually like not having to deal with dirt in my kitchen – this is where I keep my garden. I also have one TG outdoors, planning on moving it to the basement in the winter. I was never good at gardening, but this? This I can easily do.?
