One of my favorite hobbies is organic gardening. Because I had to move this Spring I missed out on having a garden and decided to start some tomatoes in the fall to harvest in winter. I have never grown an indoor food crop before this, so much of the process has been learning and experimenting along the way. As I said in the video, I used regular household florescent lighting and I estimate the electricity cost to be about /month, give or take. In addition to the tomatoes, I also use the tomato leaves for culinary use and the lights also support various other herbs/spices such as rosemary, basil and cilantro. We also had some salad greens earlier in the year that we have since harvested. While the tomatoes are growing, before they flower, I recommend an organic fertilizer high in Nitrogen such as Happy Frog Tomato and Vegetable: http://www.amazon.com/Happy-Tomato-Vegetable-7-4-5-Pounds/dp/B0001YC3EQ/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=happy%20frog&linkCode=ur2&qid=1389974484&sr=8-3&tag=030812364706-20 When the tomatoes begin to flower, you will want to add in some fertilizer higher in Phosphorus such as this organic fertilizer: http://www.amazon.com/FoxFarm-FX14002-Liquid-Concentrate-0-01-0-3-0-7/dp/B0002KHDLW/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=big%20bloom&linkCode=ur2&qid=1389974622&sr=8-1&tag=030812364706-20 Grow Bags are a very cheap pot for your indoor plants and you can find them in hydroponics shops or you can order them online and I am using the 1 gallon size, although I would recommend larger for tomatoes: http://www.amazon.com/Gal-Grow-Bag-10-ea/dp/B002JLJEQO/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=hydroponic%20grow%20bags&linkCode=ur2&qid=1389975470&sr=8-7&tag=030812364706-20 I use a very cheap moisture/light/PH meter to monitor the needs of my plants and it works great. I highly recommend this one for the price and function: http://www.amazon.com/Plant-Flowers-Tester-Moisture-Meter/dp/B0085J1N6I/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=ph%20meter%20moisture%20meter&linkCode=ur2&qid=1389977276&sr=8-3&tag=030812364706-20 Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsGrowing Season For Tomatoes – Grow Tomatoes In Winter?Indoor Winter FarmingIndoor urban vertical farming; the next gardening venture for survivalVerticle, indoor urban farming is turning out primo produce for local chefsIndoor Grow Room 5 – Growing Ripe Tomatoes Indoors!Vertical Farming | Urban Produce: The Future of Farming is Growing UP!
