How to care for your Vegetable Plant

Use these instructions to care for a Vegetable Plant. This guide will tell you how to water a Vegetable Plant; its light, temperature, humidity preferences and any additional care it might need to help it grow.

Tomato Plant

LIGHT

Your Tomato Plant will grow best in full sun, but will also do just fine indoors on a sunny windowsill, as long as it receives at least 6-8 hours of direct sun per day.

WATER

Do not allow the soil of your Tomato Plant to dry out completely. Water when the top 25-50% of soil is dry. During peak growth in the spring and summer, watering may be needed every day.

HUMIDITY

If kept indoors, mist a few times per week.

TEMPERATURE

Your Tomato Plant will do best in temperatures between 60-90 degrees. If kept outdoors, bring indoors before nighttime temperatures dip below 50 degrees.

FOOD

Feed your Tomato Plant with a fertilizer for garden plants 1-2 times a month.

TOXICITY

Pick your Tomatoes when they turn from green to red in color. They can also be picked when still green and left to ripen off the vine.

ADDITIONAL CARE

Tomatoes are non-toxic and edible. The stems and leaves are considered to be toxic in large amounts and should not be eaten.
