Obviously I need to learn to always stick my finger in the pot before assuming that it contains a thirsty plant. I actually suspect that the roots got boiled on this poor Persian Shield. It's a hot spot in the morning in which anything would droop, but then it's shady the rest of the day. Obviously, when the potting soil bag says that it has water retaining gizmos in it, one should pay attention! the poor little Persian is reviving after a rather severe pruning. (They are tough, aren't they!) The other plants are doing fine, though I did move the lime green sweet potato vine to a shadier location.
