Sweet potatoe vines

Zone Austin | Nikkilevene added on August 1, 2016 | Answered

We wanted to move our vines from the ground to a hanging pot. They were only out for a couple hrs and totally got super soft and limp. We repotted them and they are still looking very sad. Are they gonna make it?

Ornamental Sweet Potato Vines would not transplant easily and likely would not survive.
You can try cutting the plants back to about 3 to 4 inches above the soil line.
Keep the soil moist but not soggy.

Then you will just need to wait and see if the plants can recover.
