light requirements for tomato plants
We live on the 3rd floor of an apartment building and decided to make a little (indoor) window garden - partly as a "science" lesson for our two year old. The building gets good light from the east and the five tubs now have a total of 10 tomato plants about eight inches high.
I'm wondering however if the east facing exposure will be enough light (about 5 or 6 hours/day on days that the sun shines) for the tomato plants to actually produce fruit.
I would consider grow lights, but that would add considerable expense. Maybe the plants will just take longer grow and produce fruit?
Thank you for your help,
