Garden Update-Death of the Sweet potato vines!

Actually my sweet potato vines,they died almost more than 7weeks ago.
I did the mistake of trying to transplant fully grown,very very long
vines into newer pots so that I can place them in the balcony.

My balcony is VERY VERY WINDY...and needless ,within a day of placing
the REPOTTED long adult vines in the balcony,the wind SNAPPED most of
the vines-and infact,the wind possibly was so fierce during the night
after transplantation,it uprooted all the repotted vines(roots and
all) and the next morning,to my horror, I found them DANGLING in
air,away from the pots.

Actually,NOT so great :(( (insert very sad face)
The sweet potato vines were the only PROUD GLORY of my mini apartment

Guilty as charged.
I killed perfectly healthy vines-with my thoughtless transplantation.

Honestly,I didn't realize that my balcony WAS THAT SUPER-WINDY,till
ofcourse,the vine uprooting incident happened.
Hopefully,lesson learned.

Why did I transplant them in the first place you might ask!
Actually,I had these sweet potato vines growing in one of my
superbright bathrooms on the SUNRISE side-where they could catch
adequate sunlight each morning during and after sunrise.
Since, I live alone and My apartment has two bathrooms,I figured that
I could make good use of the space and sunlight in the bathroom that i
WAS NOT using .It was a great idea,too,especially for the sweet potato
They seem to grow better in partial shaded areas,like say,my
bathroom,which was essentially a covered area for most part except for
the bright window in the bathroom.
These vines tolerated INDOOR conditions so well.for so long too.

I would highly suggest SWEET POTATO VINES to all INDOOR PLANT enthusiasts.

I have tried and tested them for almost a year indoors and they
survived very very well inside the apartment.They even thrived under

So,why did i decide to transplant them?
well,the vines grew so tall,they were visible through the windows and
I was worried that my neighbors might think that I am trying to grow
certain types of secret plants that people usually grow in bathrooms.I
I mean.I wanted to show my neighbors that I AM ONLY GROWING SWEET
POTATO PLANTS..i am a goody goody person...
Hence,the decision to replant them outside and also,CLEAN UP AND
RECLAIM my spare bathroom for ummm,bathroom uses!

Anyways,long story short!death of vines!

So,well,after the death of my old sweet potato vines,I kinda was too
sad to plant new ones.Then,finally,last week,I planted new
ones,outside .I don't OVERWATER THEM...and they don't seem to grow as
fast if you don't water them adequately!
They are still alive though!yay,cheers!
