Hydroponic experiment, kratky.
Took a young tomato plant from under my HLG quantum board 65 and grew it under a 10watt grow light from IKEA. It grew the first 23 days under the quantum board and the rest under the small grow light from IKEA. As you can see the plant looks a little bit sluggish, could be some kind of genetic disease from the seed type. I will definitely try this again with another seed variety: https://www.rareseeds.com/micro-tom-tomato-/

For your information: The plant is completely grown in water with the basic nutrients and minerals the plant will need, so called hydroponics or the Kratky method.

Type of tomato: Maskotka
