Hyacinth bean

I bought a hyacinth bean plant (size one gallon pot)and while trying to get my planting site ready the plant in 2 days of sun and making sure it had everything it needed the blasted thing began wilting.
What's up with that? Plant isn't root bound, I checked.

    It's likely the soil is too wet. Remove it from the pot and let the soil ball dry for a day.

    If it's been wet for a long time, you may have fungal problem - that's fatal.

    These don't like to be transplanted, so keep as much of the pot's root ball intact when moving.
