Ernie, the Ultimato is expensive. I was lucky about 10 years ago Lowes was end of the season dumping of theirs and I bought 65 sets for $1.75 each.

Weve been having the conversation about supporting peppers lately, so I wanted to show everyone how I use the Ultimato. This works well for peppers as well as eggplants

Thanks for the video. That was easier than I thought.

What is the spacing of the ultomato for 6 plants? The two in the middle would be under a span.

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to say I went and priced the Ultimato system yesterday. I'd like to know if anyone who uses EB's could justify $50 a box for this staking system?

I guess these things may have really gone UP in price since we started using EB's in the early 2000's.

Does anyone else find this price high for this staking system?

Most likely a little transplant shock, be patient
Questions and Answers / Brown edges on recently planted tomatoes
« Last post by KaitJ1987 on May 13, 2020, 09:02:23 am »
Hi, this is my first time using an Earthbox/first experience with gardening. About a week ago, I planted 2 tomato plants (obtained from a plant sale at a community garden/non profit) in my Earthbox. I followed all the instructions and have been keeping the water reservoir full by adding water daily. However, in the last two days I have noticed that the edges of the leaves on my tomato plants are turning brown. Based on some googling, this suggests my plants are stressed and maybe not getting enough water? But I am not sure why this would be? Does anyone have any idea what might be going on?
Questions and Answers / Cucumber Issues

Hey friends, my recent cucumber transplants are looking sad. Can anyone help me identify the problem? See attached photo.

I had the same issue last year - about two weeks after transplanting into my EBís, the leaves started getting these white-ish spots. The plants seem to grow, but the discoloration continues as the leaves come in. I got an okay-ish crop, but I expect it could be better.

Using Sunshine Mix, dolemite, and Vigoro 12-10-5.  My tomatoes do great with the same setup.

Thank you for any help!
Questions and Answers / Replanting an organic box
« Last post by ErnieHodge on May 06, 2020, 01:42:42 pm »
It's been a long time since I have been in the forum. No I didn't die.  ;D

I don't use organic fertilizer but have a friend who now has her first EB and I helped her set it up. She wanted to use organic fertilizer.

Since I've never used organic I need to know when she replants do I have to remove the fertilizer or just mix it in?

Any help or advice would be great.

You could try, I don't know if there will be enough flow through the AWS for the fertilizer injector to work properly
I have been growing  dwarf project tomatoes in my Earthboxes for several years! I will try to post pictures and details if I can figure it out.
