Growing Cherry Tomatoes

I have a single cherry tomato plant in a container on my balcony. I was told to purchase a 2nd plant for maximum tomato growth. Is there any truth to this?

I have never heard of this; and will be anxious to see if someone can show (with reliable references) why this might be. I have grown container tomatoes before with good results having only one.

It seems to me that the main reason for having more than one plant is so that the bees can fly back and forth pollinating the flowers.

I, too, have not heard of this and I've been gardening several decades.
