View Full Version : Possible pythium???

Hi All, I am a new member of this forum.

I have a greenhouse with a small trial of tomatoes growing on rockwool. In the last 3 weeks many plants started to wilt during the day and recover during the night. Lately plants started to die. I attach some pictures of the roots and stem of the plants that have died. Can any expert tell me if this is what I suspect (pythium) or does it look something different?

Looks like pythium.....frequently caused by wet feet for the plant.
