Would you recommend using the upside down tomato planter or not? I think it's an intriguing idea and was wonder how it works for any one else.

  • The only complain I have is that it dries out super fast in the heat of summer. you have to water that thing like 3-4 times a day. Other than that it works pretty well if you have no land to grow on.

  • I don't think it's worth it at all. They grow better for me in the ground or in a pot!

  • I also don't have to water them all the time. Once a day in the afternoon works great for me.

  • My Mom bought my daughter one because she loves the commercial but we have not used it yet. I don't really know if it works or not.

  • So it's kind of 50/50 just pay close attention to it if we do get one.
