Cherry Tomatoe Sick
idbeentaken Posts: 1
Hi, about 8 months ago i started being passionate about plants, i bought some seeds with me from Italy to Egypt (where i now live)
among the seeds I had cherry tomatoe seeds. I planted many but they werent growin, thats why i was super happy when one started to grow.
But from a week it started look sick, with white veins appearing on the leaves. Also the new leaves growing look distressed and shrinking
I uploaded a pic. any advice?
thanks for your time
It looks as if it could be some kind of leaf miner. If you find a leaf with a newish trail, follow it to the end and see if there is a little bump.
If so, that will be the critter responsible, so you can just pinch the leaf between your fingers and squidge it.
Often they are more unsightly than a real problem, but the damage may allow access for fungi or other organisms. I can only guess at what else it might be in Egypt!
