What is a TOMsquareTO?
Can it be used indoors? Bad idea?
What is this STRANGE device?

id rather swallow a cup of bucky balls than buy these.
So do these work with uh… “any plant?” ahem
Amazon with reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Felknor-Ventures-82506-Upside-Down-Planter/dp/B0001WYNP0
Had two of these - never again! Plants looked cruddy, and tomatoes nowhere near as good as the ones in the raised beds directly adjacent. Plus after one season, they started to decompose…
Got one in my BOC…that’s enough tomatoes for me
What are they attached to? Looks like they are just floating.
hahaha tomatoes! great deal, or the greatest deal?
Yes, I’ve heard they work quite well with… ALL plants. Cough cough.
Amazon has it for $7.29 for one with free supersaver shipping. It averages three stars with 300 ratings. Based on the plethora of one and five-star reviews, it looks like you’ll either love it or hate it.
I think these would be better suited for sale on moofi.
I bought a strawberry one and a tomato one at Fry’s last year.
I followed all the instructions
I put 2 tomato plants in the tomato one, and about 25 in the strawberry one
I watered them as scheduled
I fed them plant food.
I got ONE strawberry out of those 25 plants, about the size of an M&M.
I got 2 tomatoes, each about the size of a golf ball before they went bad and moldy.
Which means that these things either suck, that my thumb is blacker than Flavor Flav’s, or else someone was feeding the plants rat poison at night.
I’m going with a combination of the first 2, since these things are ass-ugly. They’re essentially nothing but nylon sacks with a hole cut in the bottom.
But does it grow upside-down ketchup?
between the grow lights I bought during the woot-off, and the radiation from Japan, these are gonna be some BIG tomatoes
