Tomato Sucker EZ DIY rooting

I enjoy generating free tomato plants from the tomato plants I have growing from the seeds I kept from last year's tomatoes.. (hahaha that was a mouthful :)
these are some suckers pruned off
I had this old pitcher leftover from a ninja that got broken instead of throwing it away I have turned it in to my rooting pitcher.
Kabob skewers
this is my easy hack to keep the stems suspended into the water and the greenery up above from falling into the water
Use rainwater if u can
Works pretty well..and it makes me happy to have repurposed something that was destined for the trash..and it costs a lot less than a mason jar because it was free.

    My interest isn't the container but the cuttings - are these "suckers" that you have grown from seed or "suckers" that you have pinched off plants that you have grown from seed?

      How long does it take for the roots to grow? And then you plant the rooted sucker in the garden??? Tell us more about that part of your plan. I have a much shorter growing season in Iowa than you do in Florida.

    confusing article,, is it about the container or the cuttings?

      It was about using the container to hang the plant and for it to keep from going into the water, is what I read. Both really good suggestions.
