Silver dust drooping

Hi friends

Since the last week, my silver dust plant has started to droop. Nothing that i do will make it alright again. Could you please advise what is going wrong here? The plant used to be healthy and i do not understand why this change is taking place.

Re: Silver dust drooping

It looks like you just watered. Dusty Miller likes to be in the sun and also likes to dry out between watering. It is an annual in most places. It is in a small pot and I am used to this being a fairly large and spreading plant in the ground. It might be happier planted in well drained soil in full sun.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: Silver dust drooping

The plant was in full sun and I did use to let it dry out in between watering. No idea what went wrong :(

It was in a plastic container, is it possible that the roots got very hot and the plant suffered because of this?
