Growing Tomatoes Indoors

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Given a bright, sunny spot, container-grown tomatoes often grow happily indoors. The most favorable location is a south- or west-facing window, where you can pull shades or curtains at night to keep out the cold. For best growth and best flavor, keep daytime temperatures in the 70’s and nighttime temps in the low 60’s. Give each plant a deep saucer and water frequently until plants adjust to drier indoor air. Mist foliage daily and feed with liquid fertilizers such as fish or kelp mixtures every two weeks. Pinch back wandering arms now and then and thin excessive foliage as you would outside. If conditions are right, you can enjoy cherry tomatoes and smaller ones like Stupice year-round.
