    I want to use Kratky to grow dwarf tomatoes indoors. How many dwarf tomatoes would adequately grow in the container that you are using for the lettuce?

    The first non-circulating and self-aerating hydroponics which is self-tending was FIRST DEVELOPED BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN AND IT IS CALLED AS THE WROCLOW HYDROPONICS. It is a conventional hydroponic system with a slight modifications which uses a metal mesh and nylon mesh, covered with a mixture of brown coal and peat, drill holes for the air to enter the hydroponic container. Add water containing nutrients carefully and gradually over the top to wet and moisten it as it absorbs the water mixed with nutrients. Crops are planted and allowed to grow, water is added to replace what the plants has consumed, After every harvest the nutrient solution is replaced. But now a modified form of Wroclow hydroponics is introduced by using water hyacinths to prevent and reverse water eutrophication and azolla to add nitrogen into the water. Water is added to replace what was consumed by the plants at the top in a controlled way so that the entire planting bed is wet-moistened. The water solution is ordinary water mixed with a mixture of rock dust powder that dissolves in the water until saturation point is reached, then it is used. After every harvest the water is just topped to replaced what the plants has consumed and not replaced for the water hyacinths and azolla has been making it fresh and mixed with nitrogen through nitrogen-fixation from the atmosphere and into the water through the azolla while the water hyacinths stops, reverses, prevents eutrophication which makes the water fresh all the time.
