WANTED: Mexican Flame Vine

Posted by texas_girl (My Page) on

I have a Mexican Flame Vine that I planted in July. It was a gift. It gets plenty of sun and was doing quite well, and then we had a week of triple digit weather (100+) and we were out of town. When we returned, I watered it deeply once a week. It's been two weeks now, and now all the leaves are wilted and it doesn't look very good. I thought perhaps I had over watered it, but then there are also vines that are brown and bone dry. I'm at a loss, did it not get enough water or too can it save it??

Thanks for any input.

Keep it moist and in the shade. Those old, wilted leaves will eventually fall off and be replaced with nice, new ones. It takes a while on this one - been there, done that!

Just exercise patience and it will recover.
