Hi Neal, Mary Ann and Debra.
I hope you find me again OK. Yes Neal as you say the larger the container the better if you really want to see fuchsias at their best. The smallest I use are 2Ltr to let them flower in, but do use very large pots, up to 12" to let them do their stuff. Most fuchsias do hang down, but there are a few that point up now, the fantasia's come to mind.
