My Fuchsia plan is dying. It lost almost all of its leaves. I water it everyday, and it gets little direct sun except for morning sun. Why is it dying? What can i do?

Snowcap Fuchsia is a hardy fuchsia and should thrive in morning sun in rich, well draining soil. Daily watering might be excessive for your fuchsia. Try pruning your fuchsia back to encourage healthy new growth and watering throughly only once every 3-4 days. If the soil remains too wet you can suffocate the roots by drive oxygen out of the soil. Instead of daily watering, water deeply only once or twice a week. To help slow evaporation, try a thick mulch over the soil. Hope your fuchsia perks up soon!
