In this video I grow a bunch of tomato plants in different ways and show you the pros and cons of each method. I grow plants indoors, outdoors, in soil and in kratky hydroponics.
We’ll go from seed to harvest with these plants and I’ll show you what I think is the best way to grow tomatoes – with hydroponics in 5 gallon buckets! We’ll also discuss pruning, pollinating, ripening, and all the aspects of tomato plant care.

About The Author


  • mal dova

    Tomatoes fruit's need a lot of SUN and normal to cold weather , and a lot of Fertilize , 1 gram or 4 ml of nutrients in 330 ml of water every two or three days(soil plant ) .then prey to God Allah To succeed in agriculture. ( Information: All the water and compost on which the plant feeds throughout its life is equal to only five percent. The rest of the air is like carbon and nitrogen, and this is in the hands of God, the Creator, so we cannot do anything about it. )

    This was a fantastic video and really helped me with deciding on what I wanted to do with my tomato plant. Thank you!


    Did you keep track on how much$$$ you spent and how much tomatoes you harvest? Will it be cheaper if you buy from the store?

  • Guy L

    hey your weed videos made me get into the weed growing, now I wanna grow tomatos, whats a good nutrient thing? im growing hydroponic

  • Tom Bryant

    With regards to the plant wanting to keep growing, and nutrients, have you ever heard of the Lucas Method? You only use the Bloom, and Micro nutes and don’t use the Grow. It’s a 2/1 ratio of Bloom to Micro that you double every week. Oh, and you also use a Calmag as well. It’s an older style of growing that helps the plant concentrate on producing big buds/fruit and not growing so much. I’m not a tomato guy (yet) so I’m not sure if it would work, but I would be willing to send you the stuff needed to try it out for us!
