Hi
My dahlia plant is suddenly not ok. It was growing well but last week the plant started bending.. I read up online n tied it to a stake.. I also read that overwatering might be an issue.. Hence i did not water for 2 days.. Also the weather here is cool and i thought it would survive..
Today when i came back from work, all the leaves are drooping... Pllllzzzzzz help!
P. S.. I have attached an image

Welcome!

Your poor dahlia looks quite limp. I think it may have been overwatered, also the plant pot is standing in a dish so excess water cannot drain away. It may be beyond saving if the roots are rotting. Try tipping it gently out of the pot and letting it stand for a day on top of the upturned plant pot to help the compost to dry out.
