I've slowly been exploring the other boards on JM instead of hanging out restrictedly at the Oct. DDC!

I planted my tomatoes from seeds and have been slowly moving them into bigger and bigger pots as the stalks grew wider and the roots needed deeper soil. I have not had a single bloom!

I just read this article: Why aren't these tomato plants flowering? - Horticultural

Has anyone had this happen? Am I 'spoiling' my tomatoes!?

Welcome to the board!

I can say that I have never had that problem before. A couple of things come to mind though. Are they in big enough pots? Tomato plants are huge! They look like big shrubs in my yard. Where do you have the pots? Are they in the shade? My plants do best in full sun all day long and usually. Start blooming when temps hit the 90s.
