Q.What Are These Yellow Spots On My Tomato Plant? How Do I Help?

Zone Greenville, South Carolina | carriegifford3 added on May 25, 2020 | Answered

Hi! My brandy wine tomato plant has a few leaves at the bottom with these bright yellow Spots on them. Is it something I should be concerned about? Does the plant itself look healthy or droopy? I noticed the leaves all kind of turning inward and droopy the other day but thought maybe it was just because of the weight of the plant itself. I have no idea, it’s my first time having a garden! Also found some damage to a leaf that I’m not sure what’s gotten into it and if it’s a bad thing. Help!

I would have to assume that the thrips from your cucumber are also on your tomatoes. But I also suspect overwatering. Just be sure that the bucket has plenty of drain holes to allow any extra water out, and that the soil dries out thoroughly some (down halfway will be ideal) between waterings.

I have provided some of our articles on getting rid of the thrips and controlling soil infections on the other question, but will include an article for the care of your tomato. (Other than thrips and watching the amount of water that they receive, it does appear in a healthy state.)
