My grand idea

Because I have some beef steaks growing upstairs and the fact I love BLT sandwiches I've decided it's in my best interest to see if I can grow the biggest tomato I possibly can. Luckily this will also be the perfect opportunity to test out different growing materials. So the plan is to pot two plants in two different pots (clay and air pot) and see what kind of differences there are. For those of you who don't know what an air pot is, here is a little info.

Air-Pots get the best out of all plants because they develop a remarkable root system. And vigorous roots support healthy and prolific plants.
Like many clever tools, it is actually very simple – the Air-Pot ‘air-prunes’ roots and this constant pruning prevents any root circling and promotes the growth of more and more feeder roots. It is these fine, fibrous roots which use all the available water and food very efficiently, to help develop great top growth and excellent fruit.
But good roots can only develop in healthy soil/compost - soil that is alive. Air-Pots also allow more air and better drainage than in any other container, another vital element that makes Air-Pot grown plants much healthier and happier.

  7. You should start finding a way to collect compost juice so that you can water your plants with that. Stinky, but I think it's good for plants.
