What's Wrong with my Tomato Plants Leaves?

TomAndJerryGardenerMarch 21, 2013

Recently I planted Big Daddy Tomato Hybrid, I fed them tums water, and provided eggshells, but unfortunately I overwatered, so a few (4 or 5) caught the fungi known as drooping off. Luckily with the help of you guys I quickly threw out the "infected" ones, but suddenly the non-infected plants leaves looked different and curly ( picture provided ). I live in Zone 5 or 6 and they are currently indoors with fluorescent lights and sunlight. Nowadays I don't over water and feed them any supplements. They only have their cotyledons none have their "true leaves" yet. Could the leaves be a bad sighn or is just a healthy plant.

Looks ok to me.
Keep the lights close and only water when the mix drys out.

What soil are you using? I doesn't look like seed growing mix but more soil.

The leaf at the bottom of the photo might have gotten a bit pinched by the seed coat. No problem. I've seen much worse damage to cotyledons.

Of more concern is whether you planted in potting mix or dirt.

I believe that your tomato plant is growing well.
