Hello all!

At the start of January, I was teaching my three-year old about tomatoes. She got really excited and wanted to plant a seed on the spot. So that's what we did. For a month the plant has been growing fast and looking healthy, but recently I've noticed some white/very light green spots on its leaves. I don't really know what could have caused it. Also, two leaves are hanging down, while all the rest is looking good. Does anybody know what this is and how I might solve it? I'm not really worried about the hanging leaves, but the white spots look rather strange. Thanks in advance! :

If that is the only affected leaf, I wouldn't worry about it.

Pretty much all of them have it, this one is affected the worst. And do you have any idea about why two are hanging down? Thanks for the reply!

That's, just FANTASTIC, Nicholas 👍. Starting to get daughter into growing things. Wow ! At three 👍😀. I got myself interested around like 12, been at it over 40 years now. She'll be outgrowing you soon. Fun.
Y'all can have, who can grow the biggest tomato contests.
With my sister, I allways lose 😞😭.

Woops. Got carried away.
Your tomato ! Opps, again D'Oh! Your daughter's tomato !!!
Looks great. What your calling droupy, isnt. Leaves just spread like that. Soil looks pretty wet, let top inch or two of soil dry between watering's, roots need some air. Even moisture, when young. When they start blooming, they like to go somewhat dry in between watering's.

Yellow-ness on leaves. Is that only plant affected ? It could be overwatering, maybe ?
Of course, mine get that way also. Just check leaves, front and especially back, with magnifying glass, to check for any bugs.

If your daughter wants tomatoes ! D'Oh! Of course she does Philip, you silly boy.
Tomato plant will need to go in ground, or at least a 5 gallon bucket, with drain holes.

Y'ALL have FUN, now !
Ya hear ! 👍👍😀

I'm happy Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
