    Tomato plants used to be cheap, but now they are not. I am hrsveating suckers to grow as plants to save on money.I like to bring plants, or cuttings, indoors just before winter and keep them alive for spring planting. I was not able to do that this past winter, but I plan to do that again this year.It is difficult to keep a very small plant alive, but much easier with a larger plant or cutting.Some cuttings will do fine in plain water without any soil at all.
