Q.Yellow/Wilting Potted Tomato Plants

Anonymous added on May 10, 2011 | Answered

I have 3 tomato trees and 3 big early tomato plants. I have them currently in a 20-inch pot in my house until the weather warms to transplant them to much larger garden pots outside in a few weeks. My 3 tomato tree plant leaves are yellowing and wilting. I do have some growth on each plant; however, very small. I have only had them for approximately three weeks now. What do I do about the yellowing/wilting issue for now? I know they need a bigger pot, but this is what I have for now.

They likely lack fertilizer, specifically nitrogen. Give them a little fertilizer and that should fix it.
