Indoor gardening allows you to grow a vegetable garden without worrying about the weather, frost, or having enough space in your backyard. If you’re new to this type of gardening, though, you may be wondering if different rules apply. Of course, tomato watering and feeding requirements vary by type, but these guidelines will help you develop a tomato gardening schedule.
Seedlings, Sprouts, and Soil
In the beginning, less is more when it comes to water. New seedlings require proper tending to sprout and grow into healthy tomato-producing plants. This is a good time to apply Jobe’s Organics Vegetable & Tomato Granular Fertilizer for well-nourished, thriving seedlings.
How often should you water tomato seedlings?
Use a mister to lightly spray seedlings and the very top of the soil. Check soil daily to prevent it from drying out. If, on the other hand, you overwater, allow seedlings to get additional air flow. Don’t water again until the soil is no longer wet.
Pamper Your Plants
The next step in your tomato gardening project is to nourish and hydrate plants as they grow. Proper watering allows plants to produce fruit and prevents tomatoes from splitting once they do grow.
Do indoor tomato plants need more water?
Warm soil means more evaporation, and indoor gardening requires you to place plants in containers. Soil heats more quickly in a smaller space, so you’ll need to water plants a little more often.
How often should you water indoor plants?
Use a container that’s at least 12 inches deep. Hydrate plants until water runs from the bottom of the container. Water your vegetable garden every morning, checking soil in the afternoon. You’ll know your plants need more water when the soil becomes dry about an inch from the top; let your top knuckle be your guide.
What fertilizer is best for indoor tomato plants?
