The Q&A Archives: transplant shock

Question: I just bought a sun premium hanging basket and I transplanted it to a coconut lined hanging pot and they look like they are dying. What can I do to revive them?

Answer: Start by putting them in a shady place for a few days until the plants perk up a bit. Transplant shock is generally mild and short-lived. Just water thoroughly when the top of the soil dries out and be patient - your plants should recover and when they do you can gradually move them into a sunnier site. Start with a few hours of morning sun for a few days, then sun until early afternoon and then all day sun. Best wishes with your plants!
