Care rules

Agricultural requirements that are recommended to be fulfilled in order for tomatoes to grow and give an excellent harvest:

  • Correct watering. Regular and timely watering will lead to the fact that the plant will form ovaries, grow well and the fruits will ripen together. If there is not enough water, the ovary falls off, and excess moisture leads to the development of diseases. It is best to water it 2 times a week. There should be a little water, it is desirable that it does not get on the plant. While the tomatoes are blooming, watering is stopped, after the ovaries begin to fill, it is resumed. It is best to use boiled water for tomatoes. Of course, after cooling it down.
  • Shine. It is best that the window sill on which the pots are placed is on the south side. At the same time, periodically, 1 time in 2 days, the containers are turned 180⁰. This is done so that the plant does not deform and grow evenly. Mikron NK does not depend on lighting, so no additional lamps are required.
  • Top dressing. They begin with the period of growing seedlings. After the pick, on the 3rd week, the first feeding is carried out. At the same time, special compositions of fertilizers, mineral or organic, are introduced. This procedure is carried out on the 2nd day after watering.
  • Pollination. Sometimes you need help with pollination. It is enough to lightly shake the plant.
