Re: [tomato] Tomato cages for potted plants?? (

I've never seen any cages like that, but these Glamos cages  <A 
9.htm">GLAMOS WIRE TOMATO TOWER 46X24</A> will fit around a pot up to 16 
inches in diameter. For pots larger than that, you can stake the cage right 
into the pot's soil. Also, you can wire a second one on top if the tomato 
grows larger than  4 feet tall. 
    Another (and probably better) alternative is to make your own circular 
cages out of concrete reinforcement wire and then put that around the whole 
pot. A disadvantage is that storage is not as convenient in the winter. 
    Sorry that I was unable to help with the pyramid cages. 
    Good Luck...
