I purchased a $2.00 Early Girl Tomato plant from Target's Garden Center clearance. I have no idea how to care for a tomato plant though.
I don't have a garden, because I live in an apartment, but I do have a balcony. I've been keeping my herbs inside though, right by the window, because I want to avoid bugs. Last year my herbs on the balcony had a number of bugs and I got grossed out. My Early girl plant was doing ok by the window, but seemed a bit weak every now and then so I put a light over it since I thought it wasn't getting enough sunlight, but then it seemed to be growing away from that light, so then I watered it and it seemed fine. The other day it withered a tad so I turned the light back on and it appreciated the light that time. I decided to place the tomato plant on the balcony just to see how it does in the full sunlight, but a day later I looked outside and it was completely withered. It looked dead, but I took it back inside, watered it and it is back to normal again. This is one picky plant! Any advice would be great, thanks.
