Ask a Question forum: New Leaves of Tomatoes Twist Like a Spiral

I am growing tomatoes using hydroponics. My plants are about to give their fourth cluster. However, recently I recognized a problem in some of my plants. While growing newly emerging are twisting like a spiral and instead of being in a line they appear as a ball. Can it be related with the feed since I noticed a purple color in the bent areas of the petioles. But they are local. Until now there are no problems related with the flower or the fruit set.
I will appreciate any comments or suggestions.

1st pic to dark. 2nd pic. Not close enough. Where you live would be really helpfull, and your temps.
Sometimes, some leafs just curl.
If they curl into a circle, you can usually find a worm cocoon inside.
Send better pictures, otherwise.

Also !!! Let us know. Thumbs up
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
