Q.pruning the top of a tomato plant

Zone 80110 | Anonymous added on June 6, 2020 | Answered

I have an indoor tomato plant growing at work. It has grown so tall that it has grown past the window and is now climbing up the drywall. Can I cut the top of the main stem? or will this kill the plant (it is not yet flowering or fruiting).

This will not hurt it at all! You can cut tomatoes back at any time indoors with no ill effect. This is a good way to force branching, and make it more compact and productive. Here is an article that will help you to grow these indoors: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/growing-indoor-tomatoes.htm
