With the rain comes trouble!!!

Category: Tomatoes | Posted: Mon Feb 06, 2012 2:55 am

It rained for a couple of days last week and it is hot again. The rain did not help my tomato but it brought trouble.


Septoria? ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

I noticed some of the leaves started to have dried brown spot all over and I googled it to find out what is going on. My deduction is that it is attack by septoria fungus. Errr .... is my conclusion correct?

I wanted to save the plant because it is my only plant so I opted to just remove the infected leaves. Hope that this hot sunny weather will help the poor plant recover real fast.

KK, good thinking to remove the infected leaves. I think you can spray the tomato with a baking soda mixture to fight fungal disease. I think it is 1 teaspoon of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), a couple drops of dish soap to 2 quarts ( or 2 liters-close enough), mix together and spray(wet and dripping) the tomato plant once a week with the spray. This will help to heal the effected spots as well as control the fungus.
Keep in mind that this is a volunteer plant and you have no idea what its genetics are so you may have a really hard time keeping it healthy.

Thanks for the home remedy, really appreciate it. I am keeping a watchful eye and it seems to be doing ookie at the moment. Love the way you describe this plant "volunteer plant" :) .... I'll bear that in mind.
