Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Such a detailed and well explained process. Thank you so much for the lesson. I'm excited to try this next year! Emasculating something sounds like so much fun! Just some botany humor. 😉

  2. I've been gardening for years and never thought about making my own varieties! Looking forward to trying this with tomatoes and peppers this year! Awesome video & great information

  3. Wow this is so cool! I love this and I’m new to hydroponic growing and now going to start really thinking about this cross pollination. My mind is blowing up with different ideas of tomato’s especially cherry’s and maybe even peppers too! You have another subscriber and thank you for this I can’t wait to start

  4. Thank you for doing this video. I know this was two years ago, but it does'nt matter it is new to me. I have small garden in my terrace 2nd floor, which is i know it is impossible to find bees to pollinate. So i search here in you tube how to pollinate tomato. So, when i watched this.. i am so glad.
    Thanks God.

    Thank you so much it is very informative and and easy to do. I have idea now how to self pollinate.

    I rate your video plus 2… 🙂

    God bless you. ❤❤❤

    How i recognize the male flower? 🙂

  5. I have a question. A buddy of mine swears his better boys and beef steaks naturally cross pollinated last year, and he now has plants from the seeds of those "cross" tomatos. If that really happened, will he get the same type of tomato?

  6. Brent, have you ever used cytokines on your plants? I got a "blossom and fruit spray", but of course that wouldn't work in the intended way. What that hormone does, is it actually can enlarge cells, slow down the aging of cells, and it can break seed dormancy. Have you ever used these hormones before? I know some people don't like to use hormones.

  7. Awesome!! I had no idea how to make a tomato cross…thank you so much! I'm a new subscriber and I can already tell my days will be spent watching your past videos! 🙂 Also, I found out about your youtube channel from watching Lisa's World so Thank you Lisa for sharing the information about Brents channel. 🙂

  8. Brent, Dana here I just got a chance to check in to see this vid and all I can say is that it rocks. From the comments I've seen I think everyone who has seen it was stoked about it. Really fun stuff and something I will try.
