Aerogarden Lightscreen Tomato Clone

I cloned my murdered beefsteak tomato plant in a jar of water. It rooted well, so I transferred it to my AG Deluxe with CropLampSurround lightscreen. The clone and its age-mate sister plant outside now (flowering):

 
   
 
Used mild growth nutrients (5ml each Micro/Grow/Bloom in 1 gallon water) for this week, and placed the lightscreen around it unlit, just to keep the lights reflected back on the plant:
 
better bush clone, using lightscreen from day 1, minus the lights until the AG hood clears the shelf slots  
 
With the clone's stem resting on the bottom of the AG reservoir, I'm hoping it'll have a few extra inches of headroom.

2013/07/26: replaced AG lights, and gave some half-strength Texas Tomato Food (because it was the liquid on hand and the reservoir was low).

Harvest thru 12/1:
  15 - first at 14 weeks, last at 28 weeks - terminated 12/17 due to spider mites

Still happy clone. Has mini
Still happy clone. Has mini buds, but giving it one more week of aggressive growth nutes before transition. Growing fast. Lights up again, but still not far enough to power the lightscreen on.

Happy clone. Pruned a tiny
Happy clone. Pruned a tiny bit (just lowest 2-3 suckers) yesterday, and switched to aggressive growth nutes. Lights up one click. Still keeping lightscreen around it, but not turned on yet.

 

I'm going to count this as a 3-week clone - from the day it went into water to root. Its progenitor was started from seed 10 weeks ago, though.
