Flavor comparison- hydro/ aqua vs Al's mixes vs potting mix
For those without the luxury of growing in ground, how do the flavors of tomatoes grown in different growing mediums compare to each other? Can the same be said for all vegetables when grown in the different styles?
1) Hydroponics/ aquaponics- Either uses no soil or uses a sterile growing medium. All nutrients from liquid fertilizers.
2) Al's mixes- Highly regarded on the Container forum.
3) Commercially available potting soil with added amendments like worm castings, slow release fertilizer, teas, etc...
