Tomato plant help

Post  Gilly21 on 5/3/2012, 4:02 pm

I need some advice. I grew several plants from seed and transplanted them in my box. I Have 3 Black Krim. Well one has different leaves then the other two so I am not positive what it will be. I have two Cherry's and one Beefsteak I grew from seed. I was in the garden center a few weeks back and saw a Mortgage Lifter about the same size as my transplant and picked it up. It has been in the garden about 3 weeks. When I put it in I laid it out in a trench to get more roots on the base and it started out really healthy. I got two flowers pop up in the first week. But now it looks sick. It is a bit yellow, leaves pretty much stay curled, and just looks sick compared to the others. No new growth in the last week that I can tell. I will check again when I get home tonight. I am on the fence on whether the plant is putting energy into growing roots and that is why it is a bit sickly looking, or is it sick and needs to be yanked. Here is a photo. You can see the color comparison to the beans in front of it and the other tomato plant behind it.


Also I checked out my garden before work this morning and tried to find the culprit of some holes in my broc. leaves. I found this guy. Not sure what it is but got a decent pic on my droid X in Macro setting. any idea what it is. Kindof looks like a small cricket.

Do not see the picture. I would go to google images and put in tomato diseases and see if any of them look like what you have. The wilts suck and are better prevented than dealt with, but there are fungicidal sprays, both homemade and store bought you can use. If it is that young, it may not be worth it if you can replace it with another. But if it is diseased and you do replace it, I would use a spray on the soil before putting it in.

've seen one or two of these "crickets" in my garden too. I caught the second one and threw it over my back fence. Haven't seen another since. Would love to know what kind it is.

i would give the tomato some epsom salts to up the magnesium content in the soil.

and i'd take the bug to the local ag office or farmers coop and get their advice.
