I have never tried it but I can guarantee you that your home is too dark for vegetable plants. Sunny windows aren't sunny enough. You will need to provide supplemental lighting. You don't need expensive Grow Lights. They are a waste of money. Just use regular florescent lights. The shop lights you see in Home Depot and Lowes are perfect. Put a timer on them so that they will go on and off regularly, every 10 to 12 hours. Good luck and enjoy your tomatoes!
