So I have two Purslane plants. One is still in the Greenhouse, the other was planted out to the herb garden 12 days ago. The one in the herb garden has taken a turn for the worst (putting it mildly) over the last few days.
I first noticed some of the leave were getting dark green/black makers on some of the leaves, and half of the leaves seem to be be bleaching out. it was almost like the leaves were painted green, and the paint was slowly sliding off the leaves.
That was about 3 days ago. The photo was taken this morning, and as you can see, most of the leaves are now shrivelled up. Does it simply look like it’s too sunny out there for it? Every other plants is doing fine, it’s only this one that is showing damage. I know it is very succulent like, but the growing instructions I’ve found say it grows virtually anywhere. The leaves have curled up and shrunken, more than dried out. Could it possibly be too much water?
If anyone has any suggestions, I’d love to hear them.
