I use a large pot (12 inches, I think? maybe 18 inches like the last person says) with Miracle Grow potting soil and tomato cages to hold them together, they do get big. During the summer I have to water daily or they dry out quickly. On really hot days, I water twice. Only plant one plant per pot.

An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

Very large pot if growing a regular plant, I used an 18" pot for a regular cherry tomato. Be sure there are holes in the bottom of the pot and never stop watering.
Patio style plants can take a smaller pot.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
