The growlog is over here. I think I just used kinda strong Flora fruiting nutes at the end to up the flavor, maybe 2.2 EC. Lately I've been using Texas Tomato Food by Urban Farm Fertilizers. It's easier...

I think if I ever try growing

I think if I ever try growing a tomato again, I am not going to use an aerogarden. I will probably make my own out of a five gallon bucket: all I would need is the grow light ... and some SPACE!!!  I could easily adapt your set up to a bucket. 

However, from what a fellow over in aero-talk sais the Apollo lights are really only good for greens. If I combined them with your set up I am not sure what would be accomplished. So, a future project is set: Make bucket hydro garden, light from another garden, and your side lights. sounds like a plan. (along with your baby girl cherry tomato). 

Now, you said you tweaked the nutes. What did you finally come up with?

Hey, Mike,

Hey, Mike,

Welcome back. smiley This site is not overly concerned with propriety. Drag photos onto the images/browse button down below the edit area if you want to show pictures. (Easiest method.)

Sorry to hear about the eggplants. I was kind of afraid of that. I have more consistent results with CFLs than LEDs.

Twocents - I ran out of parts

Twocents - I ran out of parts to make the lightscreens and decided to just start a wish list of people who might want them if I got around to buying more parts.

Hi Folks,

Hi Folks,

My name is Mike. I've been registered here for a while, but I haven't really figured out how to utilize this site properly, yet. I typically grow a lot of peppers. However, I currently only have 3 Ultras growing herbs, at the moment. I only just started those gardens in the past few days.

Ginger, the Eggplants didn't turn out. The plants loked fantastic, but I think the Apollo LED lighting wasn't powerful enough. Live and learn.

Mike

If I ever decide to try a tomato again, I'll try them. I still have your extra light set up. At least I think it's yours. I got your last one.

Still making them?

If you ever try an AG tomato

If you ever try an AG tomato again, I highly recommend sweet baby girl cherry tomatoes. They taste good, like a beefsteak in cherry tomato guise. I added extra lights and played tricks with the nutes, but the basic tomato itself is just really, really good.

I'm growing fantastico now in the AG. With a bit of extra sunlight, they taste OK. The yields are huge.

But yeah, mostly I grow lettuce in AG's. They're good at that...

No need to apologize. I do

No need to apologize. I do type, it just hurts. I endure it..otherwise things would get mighty boring. An old injury and as much as I like horses, I wish I'd never gotten involved with them. 

I am still running a few aerogardens, I have several deep water tub types as well, one homemade.. 

I am in it mostly for the lettuce but I would dearly love to figure out tomatoes. I tried some in the ag, I had a few tasty ones but most were just bland.

Anyway, thank you for answering.

Hello, I am sorry I did not

Hello, I am sorry I did not get here sooner: i am two cents ¢¢ wherever there isn't another. Thank you for the creation of this space... 

I seem to post in spurts, typing hurts and I do it whenever I am hurting less. 

Anyway, see you around and again, thanks.
