Cris........Looks like you are interested in the veggy producer stacking pots. Ten of those would give you 60 plant sites since each pot gives you 6 plant sites each. That is a whole garden right there! And each stack will sit on just a 2x2 foot area! Dont sell these vertical stacker,s short.....you can grow some large plants in them. I have grown tomato's in mine as well as large bushy zinnia,s and pot marigolds and my pots are not as large as the veggy producers. And you are right about not having to have an automatic watering system to begin with. With the variable spring weather, I have my automatic watering system turned off and I just walk around stabbing the pots with a moisture meter and adding water where necessary.

The reference to coco-nuts apply,s to many of the "nuts"on these forums using the cocanut coir grow mix sold by instagarden. Some one dubbed us the coca-nuts. Instagarden has demonstrated success with the stacked containers, cocanut coir grow mix and their fertilizer and it might be a good idea to follow their lead and gain from their experience as you start out.

The attached photo is strawberries growing in the little 12 inch NJ stackers. There is a red one hiding in there! My first of the season. Come to think of it........my first strawberry ever.
