    Friends I'm still waiting on an answer in my last blog about a tomato plant.

    Now I have this house plant and it was doing good inside but now losing its leaves.
    I have no idea what it is or what im doing wrong.
    Happy Easter to all

    It looks like some kind of Peperomia.

    Looks like a peperomia to me too. Have never had too much luck with them myself but they can be cute and very decorative plants.

    Looks like lack of oxygen to the roots from soil compaction. Also that pot looks a little too big for that type of plant. What I would do is downsize the pot. Use a good cactus medium, which is more on the coarse side so the roots can breathe. I would also use a clay pot to allow the soil to dry out a little quicker.

    Ed,, I have not seen anything about a tomato plant. Where did you post the question?

    Hello Ed-- I would suggest that you plant only one tom plant in that bucket, as toms are very heavy feeders. Also, are there holes in the bottom of that bucket for drainage?
    I once grew toms on my balcony in soil bags. They did alright...but only one plant per bag, mate.
