I did wonder if they were really comfrey. The one in the terra cotta pot dries out faster than the one in the plastic pot. I found it the other day with its leaves “wilting.” The leaves were laying on the dirt. I watered it, and a short while later, viola! Comfrey is an awesome indicator for when watering is needed.
