I have my Tower outside - SF Bay Area. We don't get snow here, but a few nights it can get frosty even though the days right now are low 60's. (I wheel my Tower under the porch eves on those nights). So my actual question is about the watering/timer schedule. After like 4 weeks, I don't seem to be losing much water due to evaporation. I have…(Show moreShow less)
Just curious to learn more about the plants that I grow. I have recently become fascinated by plants since I started growing with a Tower Garden. It has truly been awesome. One of the plants I'm growing this time around is Swiss Chard. While I know that Swiss Chard is extremely nutritious, that's about all I know about it. When learning more…(Show moreShow less)
Those two leaves are the only ones remaining from the time I got all that wilt when the pump timer got shut off by my grandson. The rest of the plant is growing VERY well. Tall and strait up. That's why those two leaves confused me. Interesting to know about how soon it's edible.
Curiosity about my cilantro. Since I have never grown it before, I'm used to seeing the long slender stems and while I have some, there also seems to be a cluster of leaves forming in the center - like lettuce. It's not, so I'm really just wondering if this is normal in the type of indoor setting or if something I may be doing causes it. I…(Show moreShow less)
Thanks. Already read that great article. Really love the blog posts. Always good stuff. It's growing pretty well so far. I had never grown it before so I was wondering if the low growth was normal or the result of something I've done.
Curioius about people's thoughts or experiences with adding 35% Hydrogen Peroxide to nutrient solution. I've been reading a lot on this and hearing great things. Also hearing that you need to be cautious and the dilution rate, like many things is really touchy; like 2-5ml per gallon. Too much and you can wipe out your crop. Is anyone here…(Show moreShow less)

I could swear, I read an article here or on Tower Garden main site, that taught about pruning young tomato plants to cause better flowering or something. I have this young beauty that seems to need some trimming and was wondering if I should start "training" it or trimming off specific sections for better production when its time to produce?
Hi dniezby, Roma tomatoes are a determinate variety. Determinate tomatoes grow only to a specific size, flower, set fruit and do not continue to grow. These "bush" type tomatoes generally grow to 3 to 5 feet tall and bear fruit in about 4 to 6 weeks. After setting fruit, the plants lose vigor. Determinate tomatoes do not continue to grow after…
