I'm not sure what caused the drooping to begin with, or what is causing them to perk up now, but I really haven't done anything or changed anything. It's definitely a bit confusing for me right now. It's been about 9 days since they've had water, the soil has been very moist until today, it's starting to feel a bit less moist. I'm going to start watering smaller quanities and with these small plants in big pots, I'm going to focus on watering the outside mostly.
I noticed these big roots sticking up out of the topsoil. The stalks are getting pretty thick. The plants still have that curling/clawing in the leaves so I'm not going to water yet even though the soil is getting more dry than wet at this point. it's been over 4 days since the last watering, which was clearly too much too soon. As always, will continue to monitor them and see how they are doing tomorrow.
