Q.droopy tomato leaves

hygiene added on May 24, 2012 | Answered

I have 3 tomato plants outside in about 5 gallon pots. They are thriving and are about 3 feet high with many flowers. The beefsteak tomato leaves are very droopy. The stems are strong but I can’t help but feel something is wrong. I want to fix it before it is too late. Any ideas?

There are many reasons this can happen. This article may be helpful in explaining more about those reasons:
