So I went outside a few minutes ago to water my plants...didn't see my pudica right away (it is kind of top heavy). Saw it laying down so went to pick it up...and the thing had practically been bitten in half!

I trimmed the worst of it off. The bitten part was just underneath most of the branching. Is it possible to re-root? Should I strip the leaves and try that way?

Take off the leaves, yes. They root very easily. I am just wondering what would have done that?

I can't blame it on the deer since they already decided they didn't like the one up front. I would guess tree rat. They like to get mean whenever I don't leave them snacks. :/

As bad as our drought is, not much surprises me any more. Sad

Mike, I might think mice or voles, but the bite marks were too big. I'm almost wondering if it may have been a raccoon. I know they've visited our back porch before...just funny that all the other plants were left alone.
