not sure, sweet potato

I'm a bit sad I only have three small pieces of sweet potato vine left. And only one variety. I will probably just have to buy some more come spring.
It is happier in this brighter spot, but still looks a bit anemic to me. The other day I inspected close and found a few of the small white bugs. Checking early in the morning they are slow enough I can squish. Looking very close I found some tiny oval orange eggs on the leaf undersides. Scraped them off with fingernail- I bet it's the same bug. Hoping for improvement now.

I checked all the surrounding plants- especially the big jade, the coleus and tarragon. They look okay, insect hasn't spread yet. Except something is ailing tarragon- see next post.
