2.5 ft. Healthy Tomato Plant started to Wilt

by Nishant
(Livermore, CA Alameda)

I had a healthy tomato plant 2.5 feet in height. All the leaves are green. Every morning and evening I check my plants.


One evening I see it is wilting. I poured water on it for 2 days. After 2 days it still remained wilted.

I thought to check the perimeter. Strangely, no roots found underneath my healthy plant. No signs or marks of digging from gophers either.

Very Strange. Ideas?

My brandywine plant is almost 7 feet tall and loaded. went out today and the whole plant is drooping. Is this a fungus and if so can it be treated before it spreads?

Go to "Problems" in the left column and click on "Tomato Diseases" and look at the pictures and compare to your plant. It definitely sounds like a fungal wilt and it will kill the whole plant. I had the problem last year and had to pull all my infected plants and not reuse the same soil this year as the infection comes from the soil. Be sure to click on the photos and read all the info on how the disease travels up the plant.
