I planted 75 everberring strawberry plants in four different towers. They are looking good and starting to produce. Does anyone know how much and what parts of the plants do I prune to help fruit production? There is a lot of info out there for dirt farming but not a lot of tower growing tips.

Welcome Carson !!!

Do you have any questions?

I have now finished my strawberry towers. I have four towers with five spots for plants. I used 4" PVC cut a slit then heated up and pushed in to make a pocket, I have water dripping down each tube draining back into my pond. I plan on buying strawberry plants locally and rinse off the dirt. My question is what do you use to hold the plants in place so they don't slid down into the tubes? Any input is welcomed.

I take a wet peat pellet and form it to fit all the way down in the 1 1/4 elbow to act as a wick then I put the plant in so it is touching the "peat pellet wick"

Hi JR,

I use 90 degree elbows not male adapters, it looks like your holes are 2". I chose 1 1/4 because I think they are big enough for most plants but not too expensive and they fit the peat pellets perfectly. I was going to use 1 1/4 45 degree elbows but they were more expensive than the 1 1/4 90 degree come a product that uses less PVC is MORE expensive?????????

If any one has a better and cheaper grow media than peat pellets, please let us know!

What are most of the Aeroponic systems using???

JR did you get the fittings in? You asked if they would thread in on their own. One idea I had is to take a 1 1/4 galvanized threaded nipple in a vise; take a metal cutting saw blade and make two cuts in the end of the nipple 90 degrees so you will have an x cut into the threads. Now you have a 1 1/4 cutting tool! thread this into the 1 1/4 holes or slightly smaller in the PVC and the notches should cut the PVC as the nipple threads in like a tap and die. Do you understand what I am proposing? Let me know.
