Default My Fourth System (tomatoes!)

Here is system #4. It's a 20 bato bucket unit that is a drip system with hydroton as the medium. I need to rig some trellaces but it seems to work so far!

I just wanted to give an update. This is how things are looking on this third week of July. I was concerned that these tomatoes may not be getting their fair share of calcium so to prevent blossom end rot (not any yet) I figured that I would add one of my wife's calcium supplements each week to the tank. It's fairly cheap and water soluable. I figure it couldn't hurt
