Default Multiple plants in one system


First off, thanks a ton for this website and answering all the questions. I am planning on building your 11 plant garden soon and am trying to decide what types of plants I want to have. Would it be a bad idea to mix a bunch of different types of plants in the 11 spots? The ones I am considering are tomatoes, strawberries, bell peppers, green beans, and romaine lettuce but am flexible with those. If it could work, is there anything I should be careful of?

I guess another option would be to do two smaller systems, maybe 6 plants each. I could probably get the under the same light I would use for the 11 plant garden but be able to have them on different watering systems.

Thanks again for your advice.

Not a big deal to put different plants in the same system......

Default You Goto Keep Em Separated

Im new to the board but wish to add what I have found...

You will be mixing high medium and low nitrogen loving plants.
Lettuce may turn out bitter with too much nitrogen and tomatoes will produce less with less nitrogen or become deficient.

Many herbs need a 5.5 ph and tomatoes are a 6.2 to 6.5.
