Is a hydroponic tomato bigger?


How can I grow a hydroponic tomato garden in a limited space of 2'x2'?



hey ron, george crescent city fl. planning to build a couple of your yard gardens for use this summer when i have to shut the greenhouse down. with the heat here in fl do i need some shade cloth over the garden or just clear plastic as in your pics? ps, you were right about greenhouses only good for winter use in fl.

I even tried a verity called Heat Wave last spring and they still didn't produce. I have manage for the first time to save 100 tomato plants this year by using kerosene heaters. I will be selling tomatoes online overnight express very soon. I will be building a large scale open field hydroponic tomato system next spring. Who needs a greenhouse?

Yes I don't grow without shade cloth or my tomato plants wilt from the heat.



is a hydroponics system suitable for the tropics? i'm an indonesian

The largest hydroponic tomato grower moved from Florida to Hawaii because of the weather so I don't see why not. And Carol from Hawaii does OK. http://www.hydroponicsonline.com/carol.htm



I am a college student learing about the agriculture buisness. A project of mine is to set up a working buisness plan for a commercial hydroponic tomato greenhouse. Because of the extreme amount of information on the web I am having trouble locating reliable information on expected typical yeilds, and about average timing from propagation of seed to harvest. If anyone can help locate this information it would be very helpful. Thank you. Danny



Date: 20 May 2001 Time: 13:10:45 Comments I have started a hydroponic tomato garden. The plants have been in it about 18 days and have really been looking good. I have noticed in the past few days that the better boy's leaves have curled up. The others are doing well though. Also, there is a brownish looking residue in the tubes and some of the roots have this brownish look to them now. The roots used to look white when they first started to grow. Is this some sort of fungus or algae growth? Should I do something about it? If someone could offer some info, I would welcome it.

18 days is to early to worry. Just keep an eye on them longer before you panic.

New reponse:

It has been just over one month now and almost all of my tomato plants are gone. The leaves continued to curl up and they stopped growing. They arent dead yet, but they might as well be. I was using a hydroponic fertilizer and adding one teaspoon per gallon of water as directed. If anyone knows a better fertilizer to use or know what I am doing wrong, I would appreciate the help on it.

If your pH is to low or to high it won't matter what kind or how much fertilizer you use it won't help.
