Project Tomato - Update
Since I had a problem with plant 1, I had just wanted to dig it up to check for beetle grubs. Just a couple of months ago most of my potted plants were plagued with those ewe disgusting grubs.
A day after returning from my road trip, while I was making a small trench around my aubergine plant to add in some pelletised chicken dung, I caught 2 of those varmints. That prompted to dig out the tomato plant 1 to check for grubs.

Looking at the picture now, it looks like the plant is recovering ... hmm maybe I should left it alone.

After cleaning the roots clean of all earth, there was no disgusting grubs in sight. I felt relived, I guess having to deal with so many of these grubs, I had developed a phobia.

Before burying the roots completely, I added Epsom salt and some compost as a recovery medication.

I removed some of the lower leaves and planted it deeper. Now I guess it is waiting time.
