Default lots of fluorescent light doing nothing

Ron...I am growing one tomato plant in a MicroFarm inside. It's very happy right now, with bright green leaves and a ton of leaf growth happening on top. The problem is, I am using lots of fluorescent light and I keep reading here that that won't do it when the plant gets bigger. It's about a foot tall right now. At what point do you think I'll HAVE to shell out big bucks for better lighting? Thanks, Meredith

Any time now. For flowering it needs more lumens than a florescent can give it. You can't eat green, you want red.
