Stale bucket

One of the buckets I have going actually has a store bought potato that germinated and produced a long stem, searching for sunlight. I put this into a bucket that didn't seem to be working, with the stem above - but the stem is slowly turning brown and withering!? I have alot of grass at the top of that one - I wonder if too much nitrogen from the decaying grass is burning the plant?

Anyway, I've set it on it's side to drain, if it's becoming swamp like. But not much liquid is coming out.

Meanwhile other buckets with huge potato plants (much taller than the first one I harvested) actually look a bit wilty, running out of water! So I top them up a little. Looking forward to harvesting those ones!
