I am new to using one of these things, and I was wondering if anyone else has used one of these things and was successful, or unsuccessful? I honestly can't see it working. See how the poor upside-down plant is trying to turn back upwards? The plants are obviously smarter than the person who invented this thing. Plants know to grow UP, not downwards. But I was wondering if anybody else tried one of these odd contraptions?

How in the world could you grow a big zucchini plant in there? A cucumber maybe, if it turn upwards and grew up a post or a nearby something. Growing plants upside-down is strange beyond all reason.

No personal experience, but friends of ours had two on their back porch. They ended up with two dead tomato plants and a big mess on the porch. It seems those bags aren't as sturdy as they should be.

Goodness, gracious. The tomato plant I put in there is still quite small...think I'll see if I can't get it out of there! I'd like to whop the Topsy Turvy planter inventor. They obviously know nothing about plants.

We had a trellis on our deck and hung 4 of these. They require a lot of fertilizer and almost constant watering but clues and zucs did well. Containers did not make it to year 2.

Yep! Never trust everything you see and say, "Wow, neat!". Wal-Mart is full of that stuff, and frankly I don't mind telling people... I hate Wal-Mart. :wtf: I have a couple more of those Topsy Turvy things, I bought them for only a dollar each, but I don't think they were even worth that. I'll send them to Goodwill. :LOL:
