Tomato Plant does not tolerate low-light 🚫.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Tomato Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Tomato’s are great plants they are easy to grow, are pet friendly and blooms easily. I am using just some regular soil and some sugar cane mulch. This is good for any type of plant.
I am also growing lettuce, Cucumber, Spinach, Strawberries etc. All is good so far cross your fingers for me :)
I have had this tomato plant for 4 months. I feed and water it weekly. I thought it had finished fruiting, but no, there are further flowers growing. I’ve had to repot once in that time. The fruit are so sweet. The best tomatoes I’ve ever tasted.
