Tomatoes with white leaves

Posted By: kevin revicki  Posted On: Apr 22nd, 2012  Filed Under: Home & Garden


I planted 2 diffrent kinds of tomatoes about 6 weeks ago. in my garage lot’s of light & heat Never below 60′. The tomatoes came up beautiful all 72 of them. Now all about 5” to 9” tall I have white leaves on 20-40% of the plant the rest is pure green lush leaves.. No yellow, brown or black spots. “white” on the plants. Just solid white leaves. I used jiffy mix in plastic 2x2x3 cells transplanted to a slightly bigger container used miracle grow, In low doses. looking,, somewhat healthy. Can anyone tell me what I did wrong?

    Lack of nitrogen and possible water issues. I have the same problem every year. I would just increase the nitrogen and if you are still having a problem invest in some thrive alive B1 supplement.
    Use as a foliar spray and in about 3-4 days they will be green and thriving again..

    happy gardening

    O yea Be carefull with B1, I have had to raise my light every day after the second application.
    I hope the weather breaks soon or i’ll be transplanting 3ft. tomato plants..

    The nitrogen worked very well, And yes more light. Plants are doing fine now and ready to be planted outside mothers day….. Now I hope for big tomatoes..
