My daughter Danielle writes ‘Do you use fertilizer because I can see really big tomatoes. Even because my mum planted some (and same for my school) but they weren’t that big, they were small and medium size because they were organically grown. thank you for making this video.
Thanks Danielle is only 7 yrs old.

Hello Plant Doctor, we’re working on a undergraduate thesis, and our possible topic might be coconut husk as a inert medium on hydroponics. May u help me with this?

I have a good book for sale where you can find all the info you need for growing greenhouse vegies. If you are interested, contact me through my site greenhouse-vegetables . com . Very soon it will be available on my site as well

Vitalii Jidkov says:

this plant are in rockwool bags which are charged with nutritional solution and they receive water with nutrient every day. They are hydroponic tomatoes

Vitalii Jidkov says:

we grow tomatoes in rockwool bags and they can be reusable if you have a system to sterilize them.

Vitalii Jidkov says:

How many J-Hooks do you need? Where are you located? You can contact me also through my website greenhouse-vegetables . com

Vitalii Jidkov says:

Potentially, it is possible, but you need to remember that more fruits on the plant at the same time the smaller they will be. And plant will regulate itself any way, which means that at some point it will start to abort flowers. Of course, plants will need enough light, water, nutrients to support high number of fruits. More side shoots will give you more flowers, but for the plant to produce longer, it needs a balance.

unapez says:

Cool! I just started my six tomato plants about 3 weeks ago indoors, they are looking good but wondering… If I trim a tomato plant in a certain way will it make more tomatoes/flowers?

woodrowpass says:

is the soil reuseable?

dayspeace says:

great advice and good work.

nottinmatterz2day says:

THey aren’t hydroponic because they’re in soil not water with nutrients

nfsmw6 says:

knutini says:

Did you read the title of the video???

youtubsuxfv says:

what type of tomatoes are they?

mdavis01 says:

Do you ever “flush” the tomatoes before you pick them? By this I mean using a final solution or plain water to remove the nutrients from the roots before consumptions.

very interesting, nice set-up!!

MmmTouchMe says:

In mother russia you dont eat beef steak beefsteak ate YOUUU!!!

Vitalii Jidkov says:

Genetics would have a bigger effect on sweetness. Also the ripeness will effect as well. When beefsteak tomatoes are picked they are not completely ripe, so they will not be as sweet as ripe ones. I know from tomato breeders that it is very difficult to make a variety that will give large fruits, high production and sweet fruit at the same time. But they are working very hard on that. More potassium can make fruits sweeter, but if it is not in genetics than you won’t get it.

rach777able says:

Plant doctor Great video… What exactly makes tomatoes sweet is a nutrient or genetics? Thanks so much

Vitalii Jidkov says:

We use bumble bees to pollinate.
