Love tower garden
As if the nutrients from 50 towers are creating dead zones in the gulf. I agree it's an issue, but it's a nutrient issue, not a "synthetic fertilizer" issue specifically.
Misrepresentation by MLM. Its a good hobby. But, TG does not provide enough greens or veggies for even 1 person. Your electricity bill will increase by $10 per month, if you use grow lights for your seedlings, it will be an extra $10. Then add the cost of Mineral Blend, Rock wool, seeds, distilled water, insecticide spray.. Another $50 per month. If you buy seedlings then add $100 every 3 months. One needs to grow at least 6pods of lettuce to get enough salad for 1 person. Waiting period of 6 weeks before your salad is ready for use. So, you are still buying salad from grocery store 4 weeks out of every 6 weeks. In conclusion, TG is an expensive hobby. Time consuming and tedious. Also, realistically, only 60% seedlings will grow. Quite disappointing. You can use TG only if temp is 70 plus for at least 10 hours a day and night temp higher than 60. Basically.. 6 to 7 months a year. Then u need grow lights for indoor TG. Indoor TG is slow and not worth it. A total of $1000 per year. Just remember the amount of greens you can buy for $1000 per year..Hobby vs Objective decision making.
So many countries, so many fations
I love my tower garden. Highly recommend. I used it outside and now inside.
You're full of total bullsh*@ dude! Saying that this food isn't as good and isn't natural and blah blah blah... Total horse crap.
To anyone watching, this moron doesn't understand the basics of how nutrients are absorbed by plants and chances are you probably don't either.
The scientifically illiterate hear the word "synthetic" and freak out.. Look, synthetic nutrient solutions are incredibly important in a hydro system. When growing traditionally, using compost, bacteria are responsible for breaking down minerals that plants cannot access on their own - The Nitrogen, Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Calcium, Iron, etc are not readily available in their simple forms. The bacteria breaks down these minerals into the basic the molecular forms that plants need. No bacteria = no nutrients for the plant = dead plant.
In most hydro systems, you're removing the bacteria element, and for the better - they're too slow to keep up with most plants. Synthetic nutrients are minerals that will naturally breakdown very quickly into the nutrients that can be absorbed or are already in their basic molecular forms. Because of this, they're immediately available to the plant and in abundance.
There's no hocus pocus big bad toxic "chemicals" involved.
It's a very well understood science and it's not going to kill you to eat a hydro grown tomato. If anything your body will benefit from a more nutritious fruit.
Fucking naturalists.. I swear.
Fantastic video. They are all great. But hydro does have tons of draw backs.
I just bought 3 towers USED and all supplies. I am going to be growing inside during the winter. I have a small area to grow out side in the summer but not nearly enough to feed me. Im sad that you are poo pooing this!
I'd be more skeptical of the effectiveness of the tower system; not the synthetic nutrients. There are many examples of excellent use of synthetic fertilizer, but this isn't one of them. This video seems to have a bit of an agenda.
Looked up the garden tower and that looks like a great system too. I like the compost feature but it’s over $500 as well before the lights - so not sure it’s any less expensive - the lights are $600
Sounds like an imbecile.
We have to innovate and become more efficient
John Kohler you're absolutely right but some of us our Gardens are not doing great and we need to really start getting some vegetables growing we have a food shortage coming up within the next year or so so Hydroponics will work
Talking about run off and dead zones... You're mainly talking about farmers lmao
Check out aqua ponics
I think you may be a dick bag!! You seem to be a tool!!
You don’t know what you are talking about, these are great
Your kinda dumb aren't you. These are fully closed systems with no run off anywhere. Also any fertilizer is "chemical" even "organic" ones. Do you think nitrogen isn't a naturally occurring thing? Those salt build ups can happen with anytype of system, just like hard water deposits from well water. They also use a fraction of the water a dirt system would use.
