i just planted 9 rainbow euphorbia all in a row, 2 ft apart from eachother 5 days ago. 4 of the plants (every other one) is wilting and starting to die. why would half be fine and half want to die? is there any way to save them before they die completely?

I don't think your Euphorbia are dying, but rather are going through a little transplant shock. It's common for new transplants to go through an adjustment period and they generally perk up in a week or two, as soon as their roots establish themselves. Just continue to water all your plants on a regular basis. Don't take the wilting to mean they need more water. Actually, all they need is a week or two to adjust and they will recover. If possible, shade your new plants from hot afternoon sunshine for a week or 10 days. By then the roots will have established and the plants should be fine. Best wishes with your new plants.
