Proper Indoor Tomato Gardening

I started 6 tomatoes indoor under a 430 WT HPS .
I put them in 4 gal pots with local potting soil with pearlite and worm castings added in. I trained the vines up strings i had rigged to the celing. now the problem is out doors i never trimed or pinched suckers so i was un sure exactly what to do now 90 days later i have thined the bottom 1/3 of the plants and tried to trim some lateral growth but i feel my plants have grown beyond the light capability does any one have any tips for the next round before i repeat my same mistakes.

Mine looks like that too but it's from overwatering not lack of light. Good luck with your next attempt. I have a few decent leaves near the top and I plan to use them as my cuttings.

If you private messaged "noneofyourbusiness", he'd be able to tell you everything! He does indoor gardening and by the looks of his pics.....he definitely knows how!

Good Luck!
