I took a pic just now of the plants. I put a yard stick in front. On average, the plants are about 26" tall. 14/16 have multiple flower clusters and about 5/16 have fruit set so far.

The fill valve won't let the water level drop further than a half gallon low. So it's pretty much always at 25-26 gallons.

Don't hate me. The water is city water.... .52EC depending on season.
