Tomatoes are many vegetable gardeners' holy grail.
They're also a challenge to grow in an Aerogarden. A couple key points:
- Pruning - please read Aerogrow.com's article, Pruning for the Technically-Inclined.
- Pollinating - yeah, in theory, running your hand through the plant can work. Better, however, is to pollinate the flowers by gently rubbing the yellow center point with Q-tip or watercolor paint brush. Or buzz the back of the flower or the flower stalk with an electric toothbrush - the vibration moves the pollen.
- If you have the option to use one of the stronger-light Aerogarden models (Deluxe, Pro200, Aerogarden 6 Elite Plus), do it. Tomatoes seem to want more light and height than they can get in the other models.
The above amounts to Frequently Asked Questions.
