Red Dwarf Cherry Tomato 'Vilma'

Lycopersicon Esculentum Mill.

The Tomato 'Vilma' is super fertile and one of the most popular tomato variety for growing as houseplants. It grows as a compact bush loaded with bright red, small sized fruits each weighing between 15-20g. It is superb flavoured and best for fresh consumption and marinating. Naturally nutritionally rich, it is a great source of essential vitamins and minerals.

This dwarf variety grows perfectly in Plantui! As it is a little larger than our regular plants, you should only plant in alternate capsule slots (3 planted, 3 empty) so that it has sufficient space to grow. To ensure success you should also sow between 2-3 seeds per capsule then kill off the weaker seedlings leaving only 1 plant per capsule. This will ensure that you will have a successful germination phase, and that your plants have ample space to grow big and strong.

When the plant grows to about a full height block tall, increase the nutrient concentration to 2 spoons per litre. When it starts flowering and fruiting, increase the concentration to 3 spoons per litre.

When you start seeing the flowers bloom, you will also need to help pollinate them by gently tapping the stalks with a pen. You can also shake the plant gently. You should see some pollen fall out the flowers! This process should be repeated every 3 days during the flowering stage.

For your hard work, you will be rewarded with the taste of the sweetest, juiciest tomato ever! There is no supermarket tomato that can compare with eating these fresh off the vine!
