I picked up three Better Bush tomato plants and one Better Bush Cherry tomato plant from our local WalMart Nursery a week ago. I kept them in their original pots until I was ready to transplant them, three days ago. I placed each in its own pot. They were all of different ages, but still young, no flowers. Two of them I placed in ceramic pots, (no holes in the bottom for drainage), taking a chance because at the time I did this, I wasn't sure if they required drainage. ( I've read some blips that state drainage was not a requirement, but I'm now skeptical) Anyway, one of the plants in the ceramic pot is the one that two days later, the leaves are "sad" looking, droopy, limp. It had plenty of water and because I live on the "desert" side of Oahu, we have plenty of sun. Temperatures have been in the low to mid 80's during the day and high 70's at night. The soil I used for all plants was store bought "vegetable planting soil/fertilizer.
Any suggestions would truly be appreciated. Oh yeah, one more thing I'm noticing on some of the leaves of the other plants, there are small white lines on them, vein-like looking. Any words of wisdom on that or should I worry about it?
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,
Holding my breath in Hawaii....
