Organic Cherry Tomato
As some of the easiest tomatoes to grow, these Organic Red Cherry Tomato plants are the perfect gateway plant to learning how to container garden. Indoors or outdoors, with bright light, consistent moisture, and some love and care, your plant will produce plenty of little cherry tomatoes for you to enjoy.
They love as much heat and sun as possible. The best spot for them is outdoors where they can see the sun for the majority of the day (at least 6 hours).
They will do their best and fruit profusely in bright light. A nice bright place outside would be on a sunny balcony, deck, or backyard. Remember that plants will grow and flower based on how much light they receive.
Plants grown in containers have a greater need for water, on hot days you may need to water both in the morning and evening. Do expect to water all container cherry tomatoes daily unless it has been raining.
They like a high humidity environment. Outdoors, this should happen naturally in the summer.
As it grows taller, consider supporting it with a cage, trellis, or stakes in order to support its growth. It is good to use a water-soluble fertilizer, a 20-20-20 general-purpose will work though if you are investing in a fertilizer there are tomato-specific brands available. Follow the strength recommendation on the packaging. Keep your plant protected from any wind and in temperatures above 12 C
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
