    well i put my cherry tomatoe plants in a plastic bottle and followed the recommended steps, in less than 24 hours my cherry tomatoe plants have decided they prefer to go up, all 6 of them have turned from straight tomatoe plants to curly tomatoe plants, dont think i like it, good thing the other 6 are in the garden
