I started these tomatoes on the soil and they were kind of crowded. I placed 2 of the largest ones in a separate container and they already have 2 tomatoes and lots of flowers, these where the others that where left. I put them in the aquaponic system a month ago, and although it has grown, it's no where near the size of the bigger ones I placed in soil. Other plants in the system are doing well ( I think :D ) 1 main difference is that the potted tomatoes get around 3 hours of direct sunlight and the aquaponics get all they're light through a grow lamp
I'm wondering if that bad start has anything to do with how things are going now.
These are the tomatoes in question, as you can see, even at that size, they can't hold up their own weight.
Here are the tomatoes that got a head start on the crowded pot that I separated.
Here are some happy plants on the system. I mention this because this leads me to think it's not some nutrient issue. The first gets the same amount of direct sunlight, and the bottom one is all by the grow light.
