There are multiple ways to root or clone tomato suckers. For hydroponics, it needs to be done without soil. One of the easiest ways is with the use of growplugs. They hold a good amount of moisture, while still providing proper aeration. A couple of things to remember, keep them out of direct sunlight during the rooting process. And make sure you have some type of cover over them to maintain good humidity levels. Doing so will greatly increase your chances of success.

For planting tomatoes in a trench, or sideways, this is a helpful tip. It was suggested by someone who commented on one of my videos last year (alan30189). When laying tomato plants in a trench, it's not easy to get the tip of the plant up off the ground. However, as was suggested, if you lay the plant on it's side for a day or two prior to planting, it will go ahead and turn up. This will create a 90 degree bend in the stem, allowing you to then put the plant into a trench with no fear of breaking the stem or having the leaves laying on the ground. This tip worked out very well.

When you're growing tomatoes and pruning them to a single stem, you need a way to keep them growing vertically. The simplest way is to tie twine to a purlin or rafter in the top of your greenhouse, and secure the stems with "trellis clips". I prefer to use baling twine, since it won't rot and is very strong. However, if you want to grow the 15-20 foot tall plants, you need to be able to drop the string down and move the top of the plant laterally. This can be accomplished by running a heavy wire or cable horizontally in the top of your greenhouse, and using a roller type string system. It works pretty good for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, pole beans, and anything else that you want to grow vertically. Also, I've had many requests to explain the trellis that I built for growing tomatoes last year. Essentially, it's a souped up clothesline, designed to support a good amount of weight. Since I like to rotate crops, I'm using it for pole beans this year, Fortex and Red Cranberry. https://www.facebook.com/mhp.gardener

Learn how to get 50-80 lbs of tomatoes from every tomato plant. Planting a garden can be a lot of fun but get a harvest is really what it is all about. Follow these steps to dramatically improve your tomato harvest. 1. Buy the right plants for your area. Talk with the Master Gardener association or university agriculture extension in your area. 2. Lay plants on their side so the tips will grow upwards. 3. Dig a trench and bury all but the top 3 inches. 4. Add 1/4-1/2 cup slow release fertilizer, like cotton seed meal, Osmocote, etc., to the trench. 5. Build a 5 foot high 2 foot diameter cage around each plant. 6. Cover cage on the sides and on top with "floating row cover" (a light polyester material) or plastic to protect from wind and weather until plants are large and strong and weather is warm. 7. Weekly apply water soluble fertilizer, like Rapid Grow or Miracle Grow, through a hose-end fertilizer applicator on the leaves. 8. When plants have set their first cluster of fruit, side dress with two to three tablespoons of ammonium sulfate and water well. 9. Pick tomatoes when 30% ripe to avoid the birds from eating them. 10. Do not put tomatoes in the refrigerator. Keep on the kitchen counter.

Tomato 'suckers' will actually turn into stems that produce tomatoes. If you don't prune the 'suckers' from your indeterminate plants you will end up with dozens of stems that produce tomatoes. It is a problem. You will end up with too much growth that is difficult to manage. That can lead to diseases, more but smaller tomatoes and you end up with a plant that won't survive in a container. You have to prune indeterminate container tomatoes to one main productive stem. If you are adventurous and can manage the plants water... you can get away with to main production stems.
