    kinda awkward question

    you know some people plant their tomatoes and stuff upside down and it does pretty good for some of them. i was wondering if hanging a nepenthese upside down will have any effect on it except for the fact that the pitcher will look upright.

    Yeah, I've noticed no matter how funky of an angle a pitcher develops at, it always uprights itself in the end.

    I have already tried something like that, and it turns out that basal growth pops out from the lower stem like crazy, and might even grow through the root ball and emerge at the other end. - Rich

    Even tomato plants grown upside down will turn up towards the sun.

    I think it might be pretty cool to do that though and get basal shoots coming out in all directions of the open pot. Have a ball of nepenthes!

    What is the intended benefit of growing tomato's upside down? I've heard of it, but never read much about it.

    donno, but i think it has something to do with circulation, like when we're upside down, you feel the blood rushing through your head. something like that i guess.
