New! Tower Hybrid Root Veggie and Cannabis Growing System has replaced Veggie Garden2go As a Tower Garden Attachment to Increase Growing Capabilities
Here's our new and improved hybrid aeroponic/hydroponic growing system attachment
Growing your own pure organic root plants like beets (right photo), carrots or potatoes, and large bushes like marijuana (four, 7' tall plants in left photo) or other herbs, sprouts and bulbs in small sunlit or indoor grow light places has never been easier and faster.
Please note: we're now testing this redesigned and improved prototype upgrade of the Veggie Garden2go growing system and it will soon become a unique optional attachment that connects to the aeroponic Tower Garden growing system from Juice Plus Company. It is the small green planting tub sitting on the white Tower Garden base.
When installed on the Tower Garden, It transform the world's most popular food growing system into an advanced hybrid aeroponic/hydroponic growing system that will make Towergardeners very happy because it greatly expands growing capabilities.
It is easy to install and remove in minutes. It's the first of its type, and we expect to post more details and photos in coming weeks while we prepare to go into production. Check back on this page for updates and availability. We expect the purchase price to be about 1/3 of the original Veggie Garden2go.
Both of the advanced food and pot growing systems we sell are safe to use since they are made of durable food grade plastics and no toxic plant nutrient chemicals or pesticides are use in the growing process. Please read this recent story from NBC TV news that dramatically shows how most commercially grown pot in California is chemically contaminated and harmful to users even after the sellers said it was safe to use.
Read on to learn more about how Veggie Garden2go works, just as the redesigned new hybrid version will work, but with many improvements. You don't need a green thumb to become a food growing expert. Veggie Garden2go is self-watering and very easy to set up and maintain, requiring minimal care every 2-3 weeks.
This is not a simple flower box type growing product, it is a complete advanced hydroponic growing system that will grow more types of edible plants than any other single hydroponic or aeroponic growing system. Notice the Albion strawberries in front (a few weeks older and riper in the lower photo), giant kale and Swiss chard and other greens in the top and right photos.
Grow up to four full size pot plants, and dozens of leafy greens, herb or root plants like carrots at a time with minimal root or leaf crowding.
Its an ideal growing companion to the outstanding aeroponic Tower Garden vertical growing system (shown below) because it grows potatoes (like the two-month-old red potato plants shown in the top right photo), carrots, beets, garlic, and other root or tuber plants-- edibles Tower Garden cannot grow because of root space limitations. It can also grow the two most difficult and most expensive herbs--ginseng and wasabi if you are in a favorable location.
Maximum food ripeness, taste and nutrition without toxic chemicals
Growing your own fresh food at home with a Tower Garden or Veggie Garden2go means you will always get maximum ripeness, critical plant properties, taste and nutrition with no harmful chemical toxins from synthetic oil-based fertilizers or non-organic plant sprays.
Despite the small size of the Veggie Garden2go growing box, it will grow more plants about 50% faster per square foot than conventional dirt growing outdoors in an area many times its size because of its unique design.
We suggest using sunshine to grow food plants since it is over ten times brighter than the best grow lights and has the widest light spectrum. However, you can grow most leafy greens, herbs and medicinal marijuana under grow lights indoors but plants won't be quite as large or grow as fast as in sunlight. .
A full view of this unique hydroponic growing system is on the left showing young beets, carrots and garlic grown from seeds in coco fiber. The center closeup is giant, tasty carrot just pulled from the coco fiber, and the right photo shows the included solar electric panel that powers the pump for automatic daily watering so you cannot over or under water the plants.
Grow your own at home, safe and pure
The safest, healthiest and best-testing food you can eat is food you grow at home without toxic chemicals or additives for plant nutrients or bug spray, also known as organic growing. A more advanced way to produce healthy, pure food is to use dissolved inorganic (not living) earth-based minerals in sanitized plant medium that gives all food plants exactly what they need the most--a full range of micro and macro minerals that roots can readily absorb. We call it "pure organic+" growing because the food is so pure and tasty and because this growing method exceeds the traditional organic standard of growing in dirt.
There is no waiting time for organic minerals and microbes to slowly decompose so plant roots can absorb them, since all the minerals are already dissolved in water that continually flows by the roots. That's why we suggest using safe, sea and land pure mineral nutrients for the plants called Tower Tonic ionic plant nutrients that can be purchased from this Tower Garden online store link. Click on the "shop" tab to see the Tower Tonic ordering link. Nearly two years of continuous growing is possible from one order of the gallon size A and B Tonic. The source of these inorganic minerals is from pristine locations on earth.
Besides Tower Tonic nutrients, you can also use fish-based plant nutrients as a part of an aquaponic growing system. Filtered pond water that has been PH adjusted and checked for the proper level of nutrients in the 1200-1500 ppm range can also be used with much success.
Scientific proof of higher yield, nutrition & taste
If you have any doubts about the purity, growing power, taste and nutritional values of food grown in Tower Tower Tonic, have a look at this extensive detailed scientific independent study from the University of Mississippi that was recently published showing an increase of yield by up to 65% for eight different types of greens and other food plants compared to the same types of field grown plants when grown with Tower Tonic in the Tower Garden.
An excellent example of plant growth comparison is shown on these two photos showing six week old Albion strawberries grown in organic planting mix in a planting box on the left and in the hydroponic Veggie Garden2go on right. Plants are much larger in the Veggie Garden2go. Both were grown with equal sunlight and started at the same time. These results are nearly similar to Tower Garden growing.
The study also shows that Tower Garden/Tower Tonic grown food plants have comparable or better phenolics, flavonoids, and antioxidant properties as the same field grown plants when picked at peak ripeness. While the study did not mention how much loss of these properties there is when food plants are picked 1-2 weeks before they are ripe, as are most store-bought food. Plus, it did not mention the loss of flavor or vital nutrients, which by many estimates can be as much as 30-40% by plants picked before their prime.

These days growing food plants in dirt is often not as healthy as growing in a pure hydroponic or aeroponic system since it is difficult to know if the ground is safe from toxins, pharmaceuticals, and harmful insect or rodent pests. Our system grows food well off the ground, away from walking and crawling pests in pasteurized coconut fiber. Plants also grow slower in the ground because there is less available air for the roots.
Gophers, moles, sow bugs, snails and other ground pests will be disappointed they won't be able to harvest the food before you do because it's nearly two feet to the top of the growing container. Food gardening new comers, students of all ages, instructors, health food junkies, and fresh food restaurants will be excited to grow their own pure, fresh, safe edibles with such ease.
Why not turn a sunlit apartment or condo balcony, roof top, driveway, walkway or boat dock into your own hi tech mini food garden? South facing with full unshaded sun is best.
Beets, carrots, melons, greens & marijuana + more
The widest variety of vegetables can be easily grown, including root and tuber or bulb plants like the stunning, valuable saffron (the most expensive herb) on the left, and the giant, just-picked 1/4 pound radish on the right, plus vine fruits like melons, strawberries and herbs, and all green leaf veggies.
Also medicinal herbs like marijuana, and even bean and grain sprouts are also easy to grow from seeds and seedlings if you use this well-designed hydroponic growing system that eliminates many of the common problems of growing your own food in the ground or in pots.
Our unique growing system, designed in San Diego, California by Cleardome Solar Thermal uses no soil and only the purest natural dissolved inorganic minerals to feed the plants. Other types of organic plant nutrients can be used instead of Tower Tonic, but growing results may not be as healthy or bountiful. Plus, many have toxic oil-based toxic chemicals that need to be flushed before the harvest.
Clones (plant cuttings) are very easy to start and grow in large quantities, and you can also grow wheat grass, beans, micro greens and all of types of sprouts with an optional sprout growing container shown on the right. This mixture of test sprouts on the left is only 5 days old and once the seeds were placed in the growing container no daily rinsing was necessary.
Reduce harvest time with our edible seedlings
If you don't want to wait 2-4 weeks for your seeds to germinate in the Veggie Garden2go, you can speed up growing by planting our organic, non-GMO edible seedlings available to order from our edibleseedlings.com web page. They are healthy, vigorous plants grown in rock wool and fed with pure, inorganic Tower Tonic mineral nutrients.
A closeup photo of an earlier Veggie Garden2go prototype, below and bottom left photos, shows yellow bulb onions and other root plants growing in reusable coco fiber (ground coconut husk). All are grown from seeds. In the bottom right photo, four young medicinal pot plants are growing in our solar Veggie Garden2go from seeds and clone cuttings.
Our hydroponic growing is slightly slower than aeroponic growing such as the Tower Garden, where plant roots grow in the air without a plant medium, but because hydroponic plants are grown in coco fiber loose plant medium with more room for air and roots, and constant daily automatic active watering, a wider variety of plants will thrive in much closer spaces and grow faster then in the ground when using safe and pure Tower Tonic plant nutrients that can be ordered below and from the Tower Garden online store.
Here is a closeup view of eight young beets growing next to each other in an area smaller than your hand. As long as the roots get constant moisture and nutrients, the plants grow to full size and are delicious. Compact growing like this works just as well with onions, garlic, carrots, potatoes and similar root plants in Veggie Garden2go so you can grow many more plants in a smaller footprint.
Most cool season leafy greens like chard, kale and lettuce (right photo) need at least 2-4 hours of direct sunlight, while warm season blooming plants like tomatoes and cucumbers need at least 5-7 hours of direct sun for maximum growth. Notice the morning mist and water beads on the leaf edges.
Easy setup, minimal maintenance
This complete growing system kit is easy to set up and ready to use out of the shipping box. It includes the 8 gallon bottom water and nutrient container with a solar powered pump that circulates the water up to the top growing container filled with ground coco fiber (also included) where the plants grow.
Veggie Garden2go does not use net pots like most other hydroponic and aeroponic growing systems because that limits the types and quantity of plants you can grow. Carrots, beets and potatoes will not grow in net pots. But they will grow in the loose, deep ground coconut fiber that comes with your Garden2go. And the stacked water and plant growing containers keep the growing footprint very small, compared to connected multiple pots, so you can grow more plants in a smaller area.
Automatic watering with a solar powered pump
Daily watering is automatic, being circulated with a small, very efficient solar powered DC pump that comes with a custom matched solar electric panel for free off-grid power. You can't over, or under water plants, and you'll never need to worry about power outages. For much of the growing, you'll only need to check about once a week to add water, occasional nutrients, check and adjust the PH and spray with neem oil or other organic bug sprays if necessary.
The bubbling, aerating tap or pond water naturally spreads across the non-soil plant medium and plant roots, and quickly drains back into the water reservoir below so there is no standing water and no waste. Only 2-5 gallons of water is consumed by the plants every week, so it is highly efficient since it only uses about 10% of the water used in ground or other types of hydroponic systems.
It is a very affordable complete growing system that can also be used indoors under grow lights in small spaces, or outdoors in the sun, which is preferred. So if you have a sunlit balcony, small patio area or even a open area as small as 3' x 3' near an RV, Trailer, or docked boat you can grow your own fresh and delicious food or pot.
Temperature control with our SolaReflexx Foil
It is a completely safe and pure way to grow in durable food-safe UV-resistant plastic boxes covered with our removable SolarReflex 97% diffused reflector foil. This highly reflective outdoor foil reflects sunlight away to prevent overheating on hot summer days and should be removed in winter to allow solar heating of the water and planting medium. Summer inside container temps stay up to ten degrees cooler than outdoors.
This extends your growing seasons by months in many areas. In the coldest growing regions, adding a 200 watt aquarium water heater to the reservoir, set at 72 degrees, will let you grow cold season plants through most of the winter. Warmth from the water naturally flows upward to keep the roots and plants warmer. If you place the Garden2go in a greenhouse or use our optional greenhouse attachment plus the water heater you should be able to grow all year in most areas.
You can also grow potatoes (right photo), radishes (center photo) garlic, melons, lettuce, like romaine on the left mixed with carrots, flowers and most other vegetables in it, using the best, purest natural plant food available--Tower Tonic pure dissolved inorganic minerals in tap or clear pond water. Tower Tonic is not included in the basic kit and you can also use other hydroponic nutrients but first check to confirm they don't include toxic chemicals and are considered organic or better.
Adult residents of Colorado, California, Washington state, Oregon, Alaska, Washington D.C. and over 20 more states can legally now buy recreational and medicinal marijuana, and adults are allowed to grow a small amount of pot plants in a private, locked space. Check the local regulations in your state by clicking here, then click on number 6 in the left column.
Growing your own will save lots of money as fresh food prices continue to rise and medicinal pot now sells for over $300 per ounce. In our pure hydroponic growing system you will be assured of the freshest, purest plant production from every harvest.
