It’s time to start a new crop of hydroponic tomatoes in the dutch buckets. But first, I need to look back at what was learned from the last crop. I noticed a bit of algae in the bottom of the buckets, so I now have them covered with black plastic. The paint strainers are fine to use again. The perlite is being re-used and is showing no signs of problems.
I give tips about where to get buckets and the grommets, and show my newest system. All together, I have 40 tomatoes going in 3 different systems, and working just great. If you have questions about what fertilizer I use, all of the answers are in the following video : http://youtu.be/vYv9iu2NI3M Dutch bucket hydroponics is not the least bit complicated. So if you’re struggling with growing tomatoes, don’t have a garden, or just don’t have much time, give it a try. I think you’ll like the results.
