    Default polination

    What polinates tomato plants when they're in the green house? Should they be put outside to get polinated?

    If you have seen any flies or other flying insects that have breached your green house security then you have some workers pollinating for you. If not you can either DIY or leave an opening for a few days so something gets into pollinate.

    Most hybrid tomato plants are self-pollinating.

    Default Pollination

    I pollinate with a paintbrush. Just brush the flowers with a soft paintbrush from plant to plant. This method work well for me, but I only have 10 plants.

    Default try this

    You want to shake the plant so the pollen falls on the pistals from the stamen. I do that even on outside plants.

    In nature many things do this for you not just insects..wind is good

    you might try a fan if you dont have one already to move it around a bit

    Good luck
