Default Sweet Potato Production

I planted a few sweet potato slips a few months back, while most of them are producing in the pots I planted in the one slip i stuck randomly in my raised bed has by far the largest vines (covering an entire 4x4 chicken wire section) there are 0 potatoes.

Could this be from too much N in the soil? Or something else? It has been plenty hot in TX for them to grow well, from my understanding. I'm just curious what caused this particular plant not to produce.
