Blossom end rot is a condition where the tomato (or any flowering vegetable/fruit ) begins to get a brown or darkening spot on the blossom, or “bottom” end. The rotten spot will get larger as the tomato grows larger. The best thing to do is to pick off the rotted fruit. That's so hard for me to do especially with my first tomatoes..sob.. sob.. sob... :'P
beautiful from this angle..
not a beautiful sight from the bottom..:(
There is nothing more frustrating than looking at what once appears to be nice tomatoes, only to find that the blossom end has started to rot :( & as for the other tomato plant, i saw some powdery white thingy on some of its leaves..& it has not shown any sign that it's gonna bear any flowers yet and the size is smaller compared to the other 4 tomatoes i have...any idea what those are? havent done my research on those powdery thingy yet...Fyi, both problems are happening to my upside down tomatoes....(but i havent check on those that are grown the normal way..hopefully they're ok) Hmm..i'm still learning....I'll do my best to save the rest of the tomatoes...I wont give up! Wish me luck....:)
