Answer: When a plant wilts despite being adequately watered, it suggests a disease. Fuchsias are susceptible to several fungal diseases, including a rootlet rot that attacks the finer roots of the plant, impeding water uptake. You can try picking off the affected plant parts to see if new growth is healthy. Fuchsias perform best when regularly pinched back, anyway, so pinching them back now won't hurt them. If new stems produce healthy leaves and buds, the problem was cultural. If new stems are similarly infected, toss the plant and the soil and begin again with a healthy fuchsia.
