The Q&A Archives: Growing Tomatoes Inside

Question: We are growing tomatoes inside our home, we believe they are starting to bud, are they self fruitful or do we need to pollinate them, and if so how?

Answer: Tomatoes are self-fruitful, but they do need wind or rubbing or some motion for the flowers to pollinate. An open window, a fan or you shaking the plant daily inthe morning may be enough for pollination. If you have a greenhouse, grow lights or halide lights you can get good tomato production. Without these, you probably won't get much production from tomatoes indoors.
