Yellow Leaves on Cherry Tomatoes

Question:


I have two husky, cluster cherry tomato plants in one big container. They were doing well until a week ago when the leaves on only one plant started turning yellow. There are lots of tomatoes on each plant but only the one plant has yellow leaves. This one plant doesn't seem to be growing too much. The other plant is thriving.


Answer:

Yellowing leaves often come from over-watering. However, it wouldn't seem that you would over-water one, and not the other. But it is something to consider.

The other option is a disease. Many fungal diseases can cause yellowing leaves...too many to mention. If it is a disease, you should separate the two plants, cause it will spread to the other healthier one.
