How to Easily Grow Tomatoes from Slices

Growing tomatoes can be a fun and rewarding experience. And did you know that you can actually grow tomatoes from slices? Yes, it’s true! In this short and informative video, we will show you an easy method to quickly grow many tomato plants.

Step-by-Step Guide

Follow these simple steps to grow tomatoes from slices:

  1. Take a few ripe tomatoes and cut them into ¼ inch thick slices.
  2. Place the tomato slices on top of the potting mix in a small pot or container.
  3. Cover the slices with a thin layer of soil and gently pat it down. Remember not to overcrowd the pot with too many slices.
  4. Water the pot thoroughly, ensuring that the soil is moist.
  5. Find a semi-shaded area and place the pot there. Keep an eye on the soil and water whenever it appears dry.
  6. Within 7-14 days, you should start to see the seeds germinating.
  7. After approximately 2 weeks, the seedlings will be ready to be transplanted.
  8. Select the strongest seedlings and transplant them into another pot or directly into the ground.

Supporting the Growing Tomato Plants

To ensure healthy tomato plants and a bountiful harvest, follow these additional tips:

  • Stake the tomato plants regularly as they grow taller. This helps prevent diseases, increases productivity, and saves space. You can also use a cage for this purpose.
  • Prune any dead or unwanted leaves to keep your plant healthy. Additionally, check for “suckers” – small shoots that grow in the leaf axils – and prune them as well.
  • Harvest your tomatoes when they are fully mature. Alternatively, you can pick them when they are slightly orange and allow them to ripen off the vine.
