Potato Bucket Revival

Interesting. The potato bucket that seemed to be killing the shoots from the shooting potato I'd put into it...well they still look like they are dying but two new outbursts of potato leaves are coming through the surface! So maybe it's discarding the old shoots, making new ones?

While in the other bucket the shoots are going fine, producing many leaves along their length.

Not sure what to conclude? I did keep the bucket fairly drained. Once the new shoots are established, they'll be a strong indicator of how much to water it. Certainly the other bucket potatoes will show a drooping leaf when they need it.
