Man......why do so many people on this site seem so jaded and negative, Look if this is all you negative people have in this world is to come on this site and knock people, then damn I feel sorry for you. Your little pissy comment mean's nothing to me.
Fuck the negativity! I hate hate.
Keep us posted on how this goes. I for one am very interested. I'd love to someday have my own hydroponic garden for all my vegetables... especially curious what kind of yields you can get, that is, what the cost per pound of tomatoes ends up being, including power and nutes...
The tomato season in Michigan, where I am, is unfortunately short. I only get to enjoy fresh ripe homegrown tomatoes from July till September, three months tops. I'd love to have them growing in the kitchen year round so I never have to go without.
Do you have a big tomato mom somewhere? Interesting approach with the clones, I've never heard of anyone doing that with tomatoes. It makes sense though. Gardening outdoors I often see one plant vastly outproduce another.
What kind of tomatoes are you growing? If you haven't tried heirlooms, you need to. The storebought kind are hybrids that are bred for thick skins, durability, not flavor. The heirlooms are basically wild tomato strains from before these breeding programs. They don't last long on the shelf, and they don't truck well because they're so easy to split, but the flavor... let's just say I can't even eat hybrids anymore, the taste is sickening by comparison. Brandywines (bright red/pink tomato, with a bright, acidic flavor) and cherokee purples are my favorites (this one is rich, sweet, almost smoky, very very dark, literally purple). You can get a crazy amount of cherry tomatoes perpetually from "sun golds" too.

right on bro! that mater will get BIG in the DWC! here is my almost 1 year old Trinidad 7 pot brain strain in a DWC outside! i had to rig up some braces as the lateral branches were about to break!
this was 7 days ago and wiht out the supports
cant wait to see just how big your plant gets!
This is a Better Boy tomato plant, the mother plant I took it from is dead, it was my grandmothers outdoor plant that bugs got the best of, I took a cutting about a week before it died so I wouldn't have to spend more money, just to have bugs kill it again. This is my first attempt at a indoor hydro garden, and I got the idea from my first cannabis hydro grow.....which also gave me the idea of cloning. I've heard that the yield's are much better with hydroponic gardening, like 10 times, we will see.
With my new found hobby, I plan on starting a full indoor garden, starting my next project with some green bell peppers, cucumbers, and strawberry's. Someone also told me that lettuce was a great grow for hydro.
You know this negative asshole ( wanabe ) has no idea what this plant actually means for me, I was recently diagnosed with Diabetic peripheral neuropathy which prevents me from going back to work, or doing any strenuous labor, including outdoor gardening ( without terrible pain ). So rather then siting in front of a computer all day being a bitter asshole like him, I decided to be more productive.
Thank you for your support and HAPPY GROWING

Damn that's a nice plant, I hope I have success like your's!!!! Wht nutes are you using? I have been using MG all purpose ( about half of recommended per gallon just to start )
