keep your fingers off it :) and be patient

Saleh, I like to make a suggestion, to remove the truck picture from you page.  It is too crowded and makes it difficutl to read.

Thanks

 

Take a cotton swab to each one. I've also seen some people touch the back side of the flower with the back of an electric tooth brush just to vibrate the pollen loose.

Tomatoes are self pollinating. In order to pollinate them, just make sure the flowers get lightly knocked around a little. Outdoors, the wind usually accomplishes this.

I had this problem last summer, in my first set of crops. I bought a liquid iron supplement and added a capful to 5 gal of water when I topped off the tank. I added the water to the tank through the grow bed and let it drain. 10 days later, I had fruit.

I am told that once your system is mature you probably don't need the supplement.

Thank you all for your comments.  here is my first tomato fruit:

My tomatos start fruiting.

Congrats! Did you end up changing anything?

Saleh, this looks great. What are you using for a fish tank? Did you ever post a video in the tilapia? How are they doing
