I’m having some problems with my tomato plant and I don’t know what it is.

    What is the problem? The photos are taken from a strange angle but I cannot see an issue.

    white spots. Looking like mould. I’ve spray baking soda. Hope it helps. 🤷‍♀️

    There are little white marks along the stem, but I don't know if they are good, bad or normal.

    Nooooo, nooo, nooo, they are not fine. They are probably having some environmental issues. Not really sunny days here in South Yorkshire. The rain has ruined everything. Looking forward to next week. Loads of sun ☀️ and less rain and cold nights.

    I don’t think is normal. That plant is the only one like that. I’ve spray some baking soda. I really hope it helps. 🤷‍♀️

    One possibility is something called oedema (aka edema) which is basically caused by over-watering and a humid atmosphere.  The plant takes up more water than it can cope with and you get little bumps forming on leaves and stems.  It's not a big problem, but if you wait until you see the plant starting to wilt slightly before you water it, the problem may just go away.  You won't harm a tomato plant by letting it wilt slightly, and it may even spur it into flowering a little earlier. :)

    Oh thank you so much, BobTheGardener! It’s true, humidity levels are high here. It’s indoors until next week. Too much rain and too cold nights.
