I went on vacation for 3 days and my sunflowers are wilting very bad. I gave instructions for someone to water and give them sunlight. I think they were under watered. They are kept in a pot under a lamp. Is there any way to salvage them? They are have not sprouted the flower heads yet only have 2 sets of leaves. The bottom set is wilting the most. I've included a picture. Please help! These are my little flower babies

Does that container have drainage holes? In the photo, it looks pretty wet.

No it does not not came in a kit. I watered it as soon as I got home (right before this picture) as to why it looks so damp Smiling

you caught them in the nick of time. The lower leaves and totally wilted one may not fully recover, but they have plenty of time to keep growing new leaves. They are going to get MUCH bigger before they flower.
Plant it and they will come.

Try to make drainage holes in that container soon, before you wind up with root rot
