Hi, I have grown this nice tomato bush since march with a "tomato Rocket" and I've been wondering what kind of tomatoes it is.
Also, i've noticed irregularities on the stem that look like roots are about to come out from its sides and one set of leaves looks weird.
Maybe some of you guys know of whats happening.

Hi Kevin! Welcome to NGA. I hope someone more experienced comes by soon.

Roots coming out the stems seems pretty normal to me - those stubs are trying to become real roots ("adventitious roots").

Now, maybe having a LOT of adventitious roots means something - but that might be "I'm having trouble and need more roots", or it might mean "I'm the happiest tomato plant in your garden and have energy to spare on roots just hanging in the air".

I see a lot of water droplets on those photos. If the plant stays wet most of the time, that might be a bad thing. Maybe it "thinks" it is being grown hydroponically so it's sending roots out into that rainwater. Don't people usually encourage us not to water the leaves any more than we have to?

Just 2-3 twisted leaves might mean anything, not that the whole plant is sick. Sunburn? Those leaves seem more exposed than the others.

I'm not experienced with tomato quirks, so take my thoughts with several grains of salt.
