This is a fully automated Ebb and Flow Hydroponics system. For ordering information, please follow the link below to see my page on Face Book It is the end of the season and I wanted to do a wrap up video of my first attempt at hydroponic tomatoes. First time growing, you learn a lot — everything from blossom end rot, to broken vines, to amazing tasting tomatoes. The title is only sort of click-baity 🙂 These things really did surprise me. I used: MASTERBLEND 4-18-38 Complete Combo Kit Fertilizer Bulk (5 Pound Kit): And it worked great. This 120GPH Submersible Water pump. It was cheap and worked most of the summer. The second one I bought worked the rest of the summer and is still going a year later indoors. The buckets I got locally. The hose black 1/2″ ID tubing. If you use the pump above, you need 1/2″ ID tubing Good luck!

    Thanks for info about only running the pump until fill to over flow. I have been doing 30 minute flood. How many times a day do you run the pump?

  • John Bsys 3 months ago

    thanks shawn you have made something i thought was so hard to understand look so easy ive been over thinking the timing system. I was given a brand new system from a friends estate in the box 12 pots no directions and a big cloning machine . I now after 4 years understand the flood snd drain perfectly.Thanks bud.

    haha! just discovered your channel. I love the comedy mixed in with your videos (and I am glad to see you are still making videos). I am looking to start an indoor garden very soon. I should setup lettuce, but I want to try tomatoes too.

    Nutrient uptake is directly related to ph. If the ph isn't right the nutrients become locked out. Cal-Mag is one of those that can be locked out in ph above 5.7. I find a ph of 5.4-5.6 works best with Cal-mag issues…

    Haha it felt a little awkward but when you brought it up the staring got funny!

    Dude you look amazing you stare at tat cam k all you want

  • Bertram Everhart 3 months ago

    The plants didn’t have the right uptake for the plants to take in the macronutrients. I use mammoth P and cal mag to correct these deficiencies.

    Thank you so much for the video. This year will also be my first year for dutch buckets outside on my deck. I'm thinking of using 3 gallon buckets. Do you think that will be big enough for large tomato plants? Thanks for your videos.

    dont listen to those people who say not to look at the camera. Dont orchestrate what you do, the more that people seem like theyre rehearsing the more it seems like i can only pay attention to how they're presenting than what they're presenting.
