Just started new tomato plant, Some kinda problem.

Hello all. Here are a few pics of my issue with my tomatoe plants. There are actually 3 plants, 1 roma and 2 cherry. My wife & are growing them in a topsy-turvy upside down planter, and even though it is growing nicely (installed when they were maybe 5-7in tall) I have noticed some issues on the leaves and stem. I am completel;y new to this so any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

fungus? It looks like the plant is wet, does that happen often? how's air circulation? your plant need stay dry most of the time.

I actually just watered it a few minutes before taking the pics. The instructions on the "topsy-turvy" said that you cannot over water the plants due to the inverted posture, so I do water it once a day with about 32oz. Years ago I grew cherry tomatoes as well as larger varieties, but I don't have the spce here for that. That's why the current setup.
The air circulation is actually quite good, outside on the patio..

Thanks for the reply!
