Hi MiniRose Welcome!

Are you keeping it damp but not wet? Is it sitting near a radiator or a A/C vent? How are you watering? Are you letting it sit in water?

I am only asking about things that would cause a more immediate problem right now. The flowers will die but should be replaced by more flowers. The leaves should feel crisp with crisp stems.

Keep it very close to a north-facing window. Water it thoroughly (til some water runs through the drain holes) from the top and then do not add water again until the top half-inch of soil is dry. Leave the roots and soil undisturbed. That's all it takes.
