Hello,
I started to grow a little plant a month ago everything was ok I could see how it was becoming stronger and bigger. This is my hobby to check how my care and a little effort create something new. But several days ago I faced a problem and suspicions. My bf started vaping at home and I am worried that it can damage my plant or make some harm. I can't see the changes now, but I don't want to wait for a day when it will be too late. I read some articles on the internet, all the sites about vaping give totally positive info aka vaping is safe for everyone and everything, but I can't believe even relevant sites ( maybe this quitsmokingcommunity.org but I can't be sure and don't wanna be advertised). So possibly you have the same knowledge and can help me, I will be grateful.

Well, I'm a smoker and real smoke doesn't bother my seedlings. So I'd say that vapor would harm them even less.

According to what I've read, tobacco products aren't good to have around tomato plants. You are supposed to wash your hands after handling stuff like that before touching your tomato plants. I think it can spread disease.

You are correct. Nicotine can be a dangerous chemical. I don't smoke in my garden mainly because I don't want to leave any tobacco on the ground as in butts. Supposedly second hand smoke is dangerous but it all depends on which doctor/scientist you believe. I've been smoking since I was 16 and now I am almost 72. I am in perfect health. I haven't even had a cold in over 20 years and look 10 years younger. It may be genetic, I don't know but I just can't see vapor harming anything.

No one in my family smokes(except I think I've heard one of my great-uncles smokes a cigar now and then, but he's not a gardener) because we know how dangerous to your health smoking is. Smoking causes lung cancer.

IMO smoking may be dangerous to one's health and tobacco smoke on a plant might be a remote possibility. I have never seen smoke damage a plant. Having said this tobacco itself can be harmful to plants and so can handling them if you have handled raw tobacco. Tobacco Mosaic Virus molecules are not on every single shred of tobacco in a cigarette. The virus also affects tobacco plants so I have to imagine that tobacco growers go to extreme lengths to keep their farms clean. I have never seen TMV much less have it in my own garden.

I'd say this really depends on what he's vaping, how often, how much ventilation is in the home, etc. Most likely it won't cause a problem, vaping "fumes" are not as bad as cigarette for example. Then there are many aerosol sprays and such that are likely in your home that are more likely to cause a problem than vaping.

I wouldn't really worry too much about it, I guess it could be different if he were hot boxing the plant or something but even that is far fetched HAHA!

Your plant should be fine <3
