Our lettuce is planted in styrofoam cups. I cut 8 slots in bottom of all cups and fill with coco coir. I sprinkle my lettuce seed in each cup and cover with a little more coco coir. Water contains nutrients mixed in according to a specific formula . Picture taken 5/07/2010.
I planted these tomato seeds in these buckets on 10/28/09. In December they came up and made small plants then pretty much went dormant. Every time we had a freeze I carried them in the garage. Then, in March they started growing like crazy! Those tomatoes you see turning red look like apples up close. 5/14/2010
Welcome to Tom's Hydroponic Garden
In my hydroponic vegetable garden it's up to me to have the right nutrient solution in each plant so they get fed the right amounts of nutrients at the right time in their growth cycle since there is no soil for them to draw from. 5/07/2010

I've had good experiences growing hydroponic cucumbers. The plants grow fast and produce plenty of burpless cucumbers. 5/07/20
