Studies on the growth of tomato plants had been intensively conducted. However, the growth that is influenced by watering on a soil where the plants are growing is still little studied. Therefore, this study aims to determine the amount of water given to the plants and how a potential capacity of a soil absorbs water for the growth of the tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum L. ). The study used Completely Randomized Design (CRD) consisting of 4 treatments ie 100 % (1200 mL), 75 % (900 mL), 50 % (600 mL) and of 25 % (300 mL) of soil field capacities. The results showed that the 50 % and 25 % of the field capacity affected significantly on reduction of the of tomato plant growth, suggesting that watering with 600 mL per 8 kg soil. On ther word, it is less than75 mL water per kg soil used is the worst growth of the plants.
