Q.Tomato Plants in Containers

Anonymous added on April 22, 2011 | Answered

I am growing several cherry tomato plants in large pots. All of them are doing great except for one red cherry tomato plant. It does not take water. More than half the water comes out the bottom, while the others soak up all the water we give them. It is growing, but not nearly has much as the others. Is there something I can do?

The soil may be over dried, which actually causes it to repel water. Leave the hose on it for 15 minutes or so and just let the water run through the container to reyhdrate the water.
