Hello i have this Dimorphotheca plant that i transplanted from a smaller pot around a week ago.

I m keeping it in a partially sunny place but flowers got all wilted and i m not sure if it is doing very well.

Any one has a similar plant and can give me some advice please.

I live on the island of Malta, Europe.

You can snip those spent flowers off as soon as they start to wither. Your plant is not in bad shape at all, and I think you are worrying for nothing. Keep an eye on the plant foliage more than the flowers and be patient. The plant is making adjustments to your recent transplant.

Since you increased the amount of soil, you increased the water volume and the plant will take more water now. So be careful to allow the top inch to dry well before watering. The watering schedule should be less frequent and more time in between waterings. If you keep your Dimorphotheca too wet it will cut the oxygen off in the roots and cause problems. Good luck
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
