I bought potted daisies, several in one pot. I separated them into 3 different pots....one plastic and other 2 were clay. All get morning sun....my problem is, the 2 in clay pots droop/wilt until they have been shaded for a bit...the one in plastic pot does just fine, never droops or wilts. What do I need to do?

Put them all in plastic.
These guys are very sensitive to drying and they faint quickly.

I stopped wasting my time with them years ago. Just were too finicky for my taste. I thought of them as high maintenance. But for you, let us hope that you have more luck! Thumbs up Crossing Fingers!
