Default Appearance-leaves

Observe as I freak out over what seems to be nothing at all!!




Why are my leaves curled? Did I water too much? Too little? Is it because I rotated the pot a week ago when they were younger, and now they're trying too hard to get back up against the window? Does it matter at all?

I think I'll plant tomorrow, so this may be a non-issue.

In any event, these are my cascades!

Yeah, that window does face west, not south. It's in full sun now, I'll have to get a pic of where I planted it.

Three of the seven bines bent real far and were kinda dieing when I planted it, so I just ripped them off. The tallest three and smallest one seem fine.

A bunch of the leaves fell off in the rain this morning. The youngest leaves appear fine, but I think I may have killed the little guy.

Curling leaves mean not enough water...yellow leaves mean too much water...

ah, ok, good, they got a deluge after I planted them yesterday, and it rained this morning, so if it's still alive, I may be set.
