It's really difficult to diagnose a plant problem without seeing. Wilting can be caused by fungal disease (early blight, for instance) or by overwatering. It's difficult to judge how often to water a topsy turvey container. You want to supply adequate moisture, but the potting soil should not remain soggy wet. I don't know if you can save your plant. Once a fungus attacks, it's hard to stop. Once the vascular system collapes from too much water, there's not much you can do to save yoru plant. Wish I had something more encouraging to offer!
