HI,
Does anyone know what causes this problem on my tomato plants and how can I fix it.
I keep my tomato plants inside my apartment.
thank you

Welcome! this might be the beginning of a disease. How cold is it there? Tomatoes don't grow well inside. They are outside plants. They need much more sun than can be supplied indoors unless they are provided with supplemental lighting.

Bob, I'm just not sure. I would recommend that you check our data base for tomato leaf diseases, or google tomato leaf diseases just to be sure. Usually leaf diseases have black, grey or yellow spots. It may be a light issue. I'm thinking the plants would benefit from being on your balcony on sunny days. Yes, a lot of folks are gardening during these pandemic days. Other than those weird spots, they look good overall.
You've definitely got the touch at growing from seed! I've heard of folks growing tomatoes from the seed of the tomatoes they grow.

Ia not sure either but doubt it is a major disease. Outside will be better but take care to do it gradually as they can sunburn if the change is too drastic. You'll need to be stepping up the pot size ro actually harvest any. Even cherry tomatoes grow on a big plant.
Plant it and they will come.
