Hi GG, I am critically in need of your advice. Album Link
I am attaching the pics of my potato plants which I am trying to grow in bags. These are 4 bags and the third from the left was a whole chitting potato which I sow directly . Rest are patches of potatoes which had chits coming out. I buried them in the soil and they came up so well and then I transplanted them in bags.
The "whole one" did best out of all four (in terms of greens ,branches and height, rest remained thin & leggy) but for last couple of weeks (around 3 ) they don't look happy any more as they used to look before. I started with these plants in October mid and wondering if they are dying because the potatoes are ready to harvest. I am not sure about the variety as I picked the normal ones used in the kitchen.
Thanks in advance

had the same problem with my potato plants not once but twice, they grow so well and one dreams of all these potatoes growing then something happens and they wilt - potatoes are prone to a lot of pest aand virus -
maybe GG or srikanth can throw some light on this one
so better to grow tomato
