    So far so good. We will know more when true leaves come. Right now the key thing is to find consistent heat and light source for them. Tomorrow will be another busy day!

    Can you please post a pic, so I can see whether the seedling is sick or whether it is just putting out the lacy/wispy foliage typical to Oxhearts?
    This variety normally has thin, lacy, foliage (compared to other tomatoes) so maybe it is actually ok!
    “Foliage has thin, lacy, finely divided leaves”- 1
    I have read that Oxheart tomatoes have little resistance to wilt and virus diseases, such as verticilium, fusarium, and tomato spotted wilt virus.
    “Low tolerance to disease and drought and poor seedling vigor are characteristic of this variety, but in most other respects it is a superb tomato. Foliage has thin, lacy, finely divided leaves.”-1
