Answer: These grasses do best in an evenly moist yet well drained soil; they often seem to suffer some transplant shock when planted in the summer months rather than in early spring. I would suggest you water to keep the soil evenly moist (it does not need to be saturated or sopping wet) and use a layer of organic mulch several inches deep to help keep the moisture level steady. Use your finger ot check the soil and see if it is damp, check both the original container mix and the surrounding soil as they may dry out at different speeds. Make sure that you water slowly and thoroughly at the roots so the water soaks down deep. In the meantime, you can trim off any truly dried out and ugly portions. If you are still worried you might want to check with your retailer since it is a new plant.
