I have a black eyed Susan vine I repotted and took inside and it's dying quickly. Help!! Idk or understand everything looks fine but he keeps losing long pieces of vine at a time in the past 3 days iv taken off well over 20 feet from the plants as it slowly died in the past few days!! Over the summer he was an amazing plant, slightly temperamental but no big issues . He was in a large hanging basket in full sun prior to this. I believe he needs more light????? Had a few cloudy days here too. I gave a little plant food yesterday in hopes it would pick him back up. Nothing and I have more dead foliage this morning.. help zone 6b Maryland ty ty ry

Welcome! When you repotted it was it just moved up into a larger pot or were the roots disturbed at all? If there was any root loss then the top growth will tend to die back. The potting mix in its pot looks almost all the way to the top, how are you watering it? Also I wonder about drainage since the pot seems to be set into another pot that also has potting mix in it. Just wondering why have potting mix in the outer pot as well?

Sue, I think you're confusing the ring of the bottom of the trellis for another pot. Look closely at the bottom picture. But, yes, that pot does look very full.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

You're right, I was D'Oh! But the soil level looks higher within the ring, maybe a camera illusion? So now I'm wondering how the pot drains, it doesn't look to be in a saucer.

Thanks everyone for the answers. I'd like to contain this conversation and let you all know what happened because I did lose the plants and I'd like to fjnd out why.
It's a single pot. I put a stand inside the pot to grow the vines around it. The root was not disturbed much at all. What I mean was this vine was in a pot with Puritans growing on the out side of the vine. I added a pic of the pot it was removed from.a pic of the plant before it wAs moved. It's very large and the plant was pretty healthy!! So what I did was remove the Puritans from around the vines root. Meaning it wasn't disturbed much. Yes I believe some roots had been ripped away when I removed the other flower but honestly my goal was to do this with as little of vine root being touched as possible... Also the root was the last to die off too. Idk what all this means I just like to give all the information I can so that someone can help me understand what went wrong.
So Im not o my a new gardener, or wanna be gardener but also Im new with this forum. Can someone tell me how am I notified when someone responds to my questions?
Thanks everyone for helping me. I got a few other plants i need to figure out the proper lighting for before something bad Happ to then. I transplanted angel wings they are not looking g well!!! Im rooting Persian shields that's going very well . Some coleus also had some I lost some have rooted slowly, Im worried a out my coleus a little. And last but not least.. my lucky bamboo iv propagated. 2 weeks in still praying they root. They look good!!! So idk..

Oh, that is a shame. That was a lovely hanging basket. Something you might keep in mind for next time, which I just found out, is that you can propagate the vines from cuttings. (I've only grown them a couple of times and wasn't aware of that.)
