What is your set-up like? Can you post pics? What advantages are you anticipating with it vs. a typical hydroponics set up for growing tomatoes? Which modular system are you using? Which pumps? Which PGR compounds are you planning to use? Have you found a good source for reasonably priced components you'd want to share?

Dave,
I will try to upload some pics of my set-up--after growing great maters in Puerto Rico for the last 20 years (with a lot of help from carolyn and my other buddies) I am now back up north--it's kind of a hobby thats out of hand--had to invent bins--lights and other stuff--will give some details later

we are using aero garden liquid on some and aeroponic liquid micronutrients on others--the aero garden stuff is a lot cheaper

My outdoor aeroponics...huge tomato plants and as of today they are still growing and flowering. I have them under cover protecting them from jack frost. Check out my blog
