Q.Can I possibly save my wire vine plants?

Zone 27712 | Anonymous added on June 27, 2019 | Answered

I love these plants and really don’t want to lose them. When I bought them a couple of months ago, they were healthy and beautiful. They are potted in clay pots that are roughly 6″ high and 6 1/2″ wide and they live on my screened porch where they get plenty of indirect light. Obviously, I am doing something that is killing them and I am wondering…

1. Are the pots too small
2. Maybe I packed the soil too tight (they have good drainage)
3. Maybe I overwatered them
4. Should I repot them into larger pots or one larger pot

Thank you for any advice that you can share.

Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water.

Apply water at the soil level if possible to avoid wetting the foliage. Water the entire soil area until water runs out the base of the pot. This indicates that the soil is thoroughly wet.
