Picture 7 of 7 from Album Some home hydroponics
Tasty tomatoes leave supermarket varieties for dead.  Nutrient is delivered via a 19mm PVC pipe which simply sits on top of the laundry buckets.  Two drippers per container are adequate.  Two leaders per bucket produces good results.  I use a double bucket system (the inner contains the growing medium and the outer is the 'drain' bucket) to help prevent roots blocking the drainage tube.  Also am converting over to black outer buckets this year to minimise algae growth.  Not sure about the curled lower leaves, though.
