5 Reasons Your Tomato Plants are not Blooming 


Every gardener expects to see yellow flowers blooming  after 40-50 days of planting. And when there are no flowers, it means  that no fruits will appear as well. So why do some tomato plants fail to flower?

Here are the reasons

Light Yellow Arrow


Excess Nitrogen

Too much nitrogen levels will only yield beautiful leaves but no flowers.


High Temperatures

Temperatures that are higher than 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 70 degrees Fahrenheit at night, will negatively affect your tomato  plants.

3.  Inadequate Water

Your tomato plants may fail to bloom due to insufficient watering. Water helps transport essential nutrients inside the plant.

4. Type of Tomato Plant

When choosing a tomato type, make sure you know the conditions it prefers. For instance, some tomato plants will not bloom during summer, when it’s too hot.


Inadequate Sunlight

Tomato plants require 6-8 hours of sunlight every day to thrive and bloom. If the sunlight is inadequate, your tomato plants will not flower or fruit.
