Tomato seedling underwatered

Post  dcowboys107 on 3/8/2013, 10:16 pm

I started my seeds in peat a few weeks ago and was gone the last few days and when I came back the pods were dry and the seelings had gone limp and fell over. I have managed to rewater and get them to stand back up so to speak but I'm worried that I may have irrevocably damaged the plants. Should I just let bygones be bygones and not worry? None dried out or turned colors FYI. Or should I just bite the bullet and when planting time comes buy plants at Home Depot or Lowes? Thanks in advance.

I would keep them going and see how they do Very Happy

if they become stunted or sick looking then you can always go to plan B and buy some plants to replace them.....

also if they are tiny....you could start a few more and see how they do Very Happy

happy gardening

Some water stress (to a point) is good. What doesn't kill them will make them stronger. Of course it will slow them down briefly, but the should come back soon.
