wilting plant

bkeanMarch 6, 2006

I have my tomato plant in a topsy turvy which eliminates alot of problems. I do however live in Hawaii and if you have seen the news we have had an unusually large amount of rain lately. The rain stopped but my tomato plant has begun to wilt significantly. I am aware of the vascular wilts but the wilting following the rain seems to much of a coincidence. Can excessive water cause this? If so, will the plant bounce back? Appreciate any and all sage like wisdom that is offered.

Heavy rain causes watrerlogged soil and that causes wilting of plants b'c they can't get any oxygen thru the roots.

When the plant dries out all should be well.

The normal change with too much rain is wilting and waterlogged soil or mix, then yellow leaves, then brown leaves, then death of the plant if the condition lasts.
