Good morning! I have a quick question. I am a first-time gardener. My Roma tomatoes are doing very well as are the other varieties of tomatoes I planted. My question is this, do they require more water than other types of tomato? My two Roma tomatoes just seem to be more thirsty than the other ones. I was just wondering. Thank you for taking the time to help first-timers out! Have a pleasant day!

Welcome!

The amount of water a tomato needs is determined by the size of the root mass and whether the water is getting to it. If you have to water one tomato more than others, it means its not being sufficiently watered to cover all the roots. Roots grow out as well as down. If you are watering through the hole in the plastic, chances are the water is not spreading out as far as it needs to or not going as deep as it needs to.
