Passive Hydroponic Tomatoes and Lettuce

I wrote in my book that one way to do hydroponics was to use a substrate like coco coir and growstones in a self-watering planter, and feed it hydroponic nutes. But I'd never done a particularly careful experiment on that point. But I thought it would make a neat product alternative to the splashers - no daily attention.

This topic started mixed-in with a Kale grow comparing kale grown in Aerogarden, manual hydroponic "splasher", and soil. But, in the Indoor Salad book, one of my DIY projects is a splasher. So I started out just wanting to test the instructions for the DIY project, since it's been a while. Then I wanted to try out my new 1-part vegetative organic nutrients vs. one-part vegetative inorganic nutrients.
