Hi there, I just joined. I'm 23, live in Iowa (zone 5, I believe) and I have had success and failure with various plants. Right now the one I'm quite pleased with is my Patio Tomato plant. My mom got it for me on April 14 (her birthday, and she bought me a present, ha!) and it's growing vigoursly. I took some pictures of it when I first got it, but I'm going to take some tomorrow and do a little slide show on Ofoto-this thing is just huge, and it has some little flowers already! Yay! I'm going to replant it as well, now that I found a decent sized container. But I just wanted to share. I also have a HUGE pothos that I replanted and accidentally knocked off a little one, so I potted that up and it seems to be doing just fine! :) There are photos of my tomato when I first got it, and the pothos, plus some violas and marigolds (which died) here.
Container garden success!
