Default Tomatoponics

I planted this guy in early summer, and through my trials and tribulations, I have achieved a yield of 5 small tomatoes. I think I need more light. There's only 160 watts, and I think that is what is slowing him down. The basil is doing pretty good, but my rosemary is really slow growing too.

Anyone else here into indoor gardening?
Enjoy the freedoms you have at this moment, for they may not be there in the morning.

What is the reflective stuff your using? and where did you get it? got somebody looking at doing the indoor growing for the winter.

For the persistent, no road is impassable.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

I grow inside I used silver mylar like Jed has there till I bought a commercial grow tent. I got mine at Hi tech paint, its also what lines the inside of the paint booth.

Jed I just started 7 new orchids in mine. I have some spare guava and papaya seeds that are viable if you want to try a couple I use a single 400w HPS for a four by eight foot tent

Oh yeah you want to help me with some aquaculture this summer?
`Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)

To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, right or wrong - is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)
