Tomato problem

by Ted Dunn
(Northeast Thailand)

Help: I have grown tomatoes before in my hydroponic NFT set-up with no problems. The plants are about six feet high, loaded with flowers and different stages of tomato fruit. The leaves looked healthy and happy a week ago and now suddenly they are soft and droopy as though they did not have enough water.

The pH and EC of the nutrient is within range and the nutrient flow is around 2 litres per minute.

Any suggestions.

To much or to little?

Have you checked your PPM ? do any of the parts of the plant look deseasied ? off colouring ? im not sure why it would go soft on you unless the plants missing something like a trace element?

Drowning ?
by: Anonymous

Sometimes if your water level drops and you add water too high on the root system you can drown your plant. It is not getting enough air. Drain some of the nutrient solution. If it has gone on too long plant will die.

Oxygen

Thanks to all who responded. Yes, I conclude that the problem has been inadequate oxygen. Now I am trying a new batch and will report on results.
