can i grow hydroponic tomato using sand as media?
i’m a newbie in hydroponic. i’d like to ask, is it possible for me to grow hydroponic tomato, using sand as the media? and what are the requirements to do so?
i’m sorry to ask this question broadly, because i haven’t got a clue on where to start.
thanks a bunch.. your advise is very much appreciated.. 🙂

No. Hydro=water, not sand. Grow them the regular, old fashioned way. In dirt

is coconut a soil less growing media?
i need to find a soilless growing media to replace bagasse
Suggestion by sciencegravy
You mean cocoshell fibers? Yes, they could replace bagasse in a soil-less mix.
But most potting soils are actually soil-less mixes. Why not just get some? Using either bagasse or coconut fiber by themselves would NOT make a good planting media.
Suggestion by gogsyc
yes coconut fibre is, also vermiculite, perlite, sand, hydroton,rockwool
