Based on the subject line, I thought you were talking about hydro electric damns....

But for tomatoes, If you are starting out with hydro I would recommend starting with bubbler systems or an ebb and flow system. Aeroponics work great but you have to be on top of the system. Think of aeroponics like shooting up nutrients into the plants. Too much nutes will kill the plants, too little will also kill them. Then you have to make sure your pumps will run on time, keep an eye on your reservoir because evaporation will change your nutes... etc.


You can build your own bubbler systems out of either 5 gallon and 3 gallon buckets for individual plants, or use Rubbermaid tubs and put 4 plants each in there. an ebb and flow setup will cost you alot more money, but it gives great results. You have to keep on top of an ebb and flow as well, but it is more forgiving than aeroponics.

You could also grow strait in rock wool. Basically grow your plant in individual pots filled with rock wool instead of dirt. This is hydroponics at its simplest and works great. The nice thing about this method is you can adjust each plants nutes individually instead of having a large reservoir that all plants feed off of. When you feed your plants this way, measure the ppm of your food before you feed, then saturate the rock wool until it starts poring out the bottom of the pots. Collect the water from the bottom, check the PPM again an subtract from the first value. Then you know how much each plant is eating and can adjust for optimum growth.

I hope this info is what you were looking for.

Peace


PS I would only grow 4 plants to finish with a 400w Mh. I would also try to get a HPS to go along side. Even a 150w or something like that. the wider spectrum will give way better results

Seedless dro melons lol. I've wanted to grow those for a while now. I also think a venus fly trap would be fun to do up hydroponic style.

tomatoes and spider plants are excellent learning plants. cheap and hardy, and grow good in most any type of hydro. ive seen a few people do salvia, but i would think it would benefit a ton if you had some experience with hydro before trying them. was pretty cool though.

i have to disagree with you flush without flaming you man
i think aeroponics is the way to go
its trouble free
all the hype about ph and nutes isnt hard in aeroponics
i don't even use a fan(I did at first while they were really little to strengthen them) and as long as you have an air stone in the rez ,thats where the roots get the fresh air from(my air pump sits on a window sill)
i use straight tap water without sitting it over night(it is chlorinated)
the only problem i have had is with condensation on the cieling of my room,not the grow unit itself,the bedroom cieling,(i'll bet thats how fires start)damprid has fixed that
i was abit inawed at first because of the abundance of infomation but after doing it ,it is the best and easiest way to grow inside imho :thumbup:

Hey, no prob man :cool: :rasta:

That is awsome you got it to work!  I have had problems when I gave aeroponics a shot.  My pump went, I had evaporation problems causing too high a ppm in the reservoir, and the plants ended up dying from the lack of water.  After I had gotten it working I still liked the results from soil better.  But I like that earthy taste.
