I was told I needed to get some tomato cages because when the plants start getting bigger they will start to lean. I am wondering how many of you use tomato cages or how neccesary do you think they are or arent?

you dont need tomato cages ,

their not going to lean ,

well if your growing indoors and you got your light 5 ft above you plant then yea its gonna stretch and lean

but its not going to lean just to lean ,

agreed . your friend has probally stretched his into needing them . sometimes during budding you may have to tie a few of em up if your lucky .. but ive never had the need for a cage yet . Hell who knows .. if you was like growing outdoors where you couldnt check them very often . they may be usefull .. but indoors ive never had a need. On the other hand I could picture spriraling a plant around one as it grows with cfls on the sides . little lst . hmmm . It could look like a bud tornado at harvest time .

I am growing indoors. Planning to put the plants into flower when they hit 20in.

I did see a grow on here where they trained the plant around the tomato cage and it was awesome.
