    Reading a number of posts here, one theme stands out for me; More focus on the container forgetting the content…the person.

    Cases of rejection solely on the account of physical unattractiveness is very common..I just commented on one yesterday. How hollow/shallow can we be?

    The container shoule be good but the content is way better lol

    Yes, but this isn't an issue that solely exists among gays. If a woman was hit on by the two guys below, who do you think she'll reject?

    Gay guys should stop the self loathing. Take a walk outside, and you'll discover that straight people go through similar struggles/annoyances in life.

    ... and I double that agreement!

    and goodluckyman I preach about the same issue except from the perspective of people putting image ahead of substance. I like the way you've worded it.

    It is not about self loathing. Not at all.

    I have been the other side too and I speak from that kind of background. I have also read a number of posts and comments-that precipitated this post.

    In container gardening, you need to focus on both, the container and the content.

    Yes, but you're acting like gay men are the only shallow persons on the planet. Why would you even create this thread? Shallowness is universal. Get over it.

    As a horticulturist for 42 years I assure you content is more important than container. I grow most of my highest profit trees and shrubs in cheap bushel baskets with biodegradable plastic bags for liners. The soil mix they grow in more costs more than what contains it.

    My container's garden is a hobby. In my experience, using too small a container eventually kills a plant.

    If the first guy was a driver for UPS and the second guy was a doctor or a lawyer she'd choose the second guy in the blink of an eye. In fact, she wouldn't even need to see their pictures to make the decision.

    That's a broad generalization that doesn't apply well across the entire spectrum of plants. There are many plants that are next to impossible to make blossom or bear fruit in containers unless they're somewhat rootbound. For my purposes getting them to bloom is what pays the bills.

    I can understand why that would seem true in your experience. As a hobbyist if you have 100 individual container plants you have to invest possibly 1 hour twice a day to make sure they stay watered during summers. In that case larger pots would help you water less often. On a larger scale operation that doesn't hold out to be the case in all circumstances. At our growing location nearly everything grown outside plus 2 greenhouses is under automatic irrigation systems. Since we're closed weekends employees are eager to work 3 hours Sat and 3 hours Sunday in order to get Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon off every 3rd weekend.
