Lisianthus is an annual plant but may grow year around in your frost free climate. It's an outdoor plant and needs full sunshine in order to thrive. It's normal for the old flowers to fade and they should be pruned off the plant when they begin to lose their petals or begin to dry out. Just clip off the flower and its stem with a pair of scissors. Water your plant when the top of the soil begins to dry out and it should be happy outdoors in a sunny spot. Good luck with your plant.
