How's your tomato plant? I'm growing mine hydroponically too using a the "window farm" method. I've set the drip to drip every hour in the day and it uses up half a litre of water every day!

Like yours mine is flowering but still no fruits. The flowers just dry up and die shortly after they bloom.

Tomato plants will set fruit when the plant is about 1 meter tall and with sufficient nutrient. Best way to maintain nutrient is to get an EC meter from ebay, and test the nutrient's EC to around 1.5 to 3.5 EC.

Once it set fruit, it will keep on producing for 6 months. I keep popping 5 in my mouth everyday and still can't finish the amount of tomato it produces =P

Hope my 2 cents helps!

So will a $20 EC meter from ebay be sufficient?

Growing tomatoes hydroponically gives growers ability to harvest produce year round, For commercial functions, benefits of hydroponic tomatoes include being able to control and extend fruit production and augment of natural sugars’ supply and other components that plant use to produce especially tasty tomatoes.

Hydroponics growing in controlled environments gives growers ability to harvest produce year round. For commercial purposes, the ability to produce summer crops all year means being able to provide fruit, flowers and veggies out of season when they command higher prices.

Hi all, I believe not all tomato variety will fruit in Singapore's hot & humid weather. Tried growing some seeds from Perino cherry tomatoes (supermarket) and it grew well, flowered but all wouldn't fruit.

It was until I emailed the producers and they mentioned that their variety needs a temperature between 20 - 25°C.

So I got some heat resistant seeds from Amazon - Supersweet 100, that is also resistant to most pest / diseases:
