A New Tomato Propagation Experiment

I saw this video on YouTube about a guy who propagated the suckers right on the plants.

Remember what I said a sucker looks like?  Here’s another picture.

Instead of putting the cap end of the bottle on the bottom of the sucker, we did it opposite. Don used a grinder to cut off the cap end of the bottle and slit it down the side and through the bottom.  I put it in place over the sucker right where it joins the parent plant and used duct tape to close the slit.  Faith filled the bottles with dirt and watered them.
