It works, upright containers are still better if you have room
on June 21, 2013
I planted some Roma tomatoes in two of these containers about six weeks ago. The first thing that I noticed was that the plants immediately did an upside-down U-turn in the wrong direction. This device can be easily rotated to face different directions. Unless you are lucky enough to be able to hang the planter where it gets 360 degree sun, the plants will tend to grow up on the side away from the sun. There is some plant Biology going on there that probably makes perfect sense to someone. You will need to rotate the thing about every other day.
My plants seem healthy and are setting fruit. I have uploaded a picture.
1) (-) That stock picture sure looks 'Photo Shopped'. Compare that to my photo.
2) (+) This is able to grow healthy tomato plants, with U-shaped vines that do set fruit.
3) (-) I worry that when the tomatoes get large, those U-vines will just snap.
4) (+) Hey, If you do not have room for a large container, this will work.
