I recently bought a pack of Roma tomato seeds at a store and have been growing them pretty well for a couple of months now and keeping them indoors, which is until I noticed strange translucent and some faded white opaque coloured looking spots on the leaves of the tomatoes. After checking on it a few days later, they seem to be spreading! I have two tomato plants in one pot and both of them have the spots. I tried researching about this problem online and none of the descriptions seem to match my tomato plants. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Not sure- Looks like powdery mildew, will they go outside soon?

The spots don't seem to be "powdery" looking though. I plan to keep these tomatoes as indoor plants.

If you plan to keep your tomatoes indoors, they need full sun and a fan to move the foliage. The leaves on your plant make me thing something fungal also. Plants in stagnate air (not moving) will grow all sorts of molds, mildews and fungus not to mention bugs.

The fan will also help with pollination as they are breeze pollinated.

Hmm okay I see, thank you. If that's the case, how do I treat my tomatoes now that they already have fungus on them?
