    Hi Christine: Are your plants getting plenty of sunlight or grow light? Are you fertilizing it, also? Give it a bit more time and more light, and you should get something. It's really difficult to grow them inside without adequate light. Good luck

    I like those little tomato spikes by Jobes available at Walmart and on Amazon. Always get instant results with them.

    How about bees for pollination ?

    Hi Christine. Tomatoes love sultry hot weather. Hard to grow indoors in the winter. Give it as much sun as you possibly can. You could also try diluting one tablespoon of Epson Salt in a gallon of water. Give the plant approx a quarter-cup of this solution every two weeks, before its regular watering. Tomatoes love high acid soil. To achieve it, try putting about a tablespoon of used coffee grounds on the soil every two weeks. Also, proper drainage is so important for tomato plants. If you ever do get any blossoms, read up on pollinating. Again, so important. Good luck Christine.

    Hi Christine, can you move her outside when it gets a little warmer so she can get the full benefit of the sun and make some flowers. Maybe a few bees will pop around too. You can also hand pollinate your tomatoes once they make flowers. This video will show you how -

    Hello Christine,

    Are you taking out the side shoots? Can the Bees get to it? Are you feeding it?

    Maybe it a tall tomato plant, in which case you have to be patient! Best wishes.

    Yes what everyone else said! I believe they need to be pollinated.
