First off, I am a newbie without a green thumb, but want to learn.
I bought a little fuchsia from a home depot about two weeks ago that looked healthy and like it was about to bloom. I planted it in an plastic pot (used to be a hanging basket pot) with holes in the bottom for water to escape. I keep it near my house where it gets some sun but hardly direct harsh sunlight (which I thought I was suppose to do), I water basically every day but do my best to not over water, if the soil is damp I only give it minimal water. Well since I've been doing this the first week it looked as if it was growing beautifully, getting a little bigger and starting to bloom, then the second week it has been in a slow decline. I am struggling to keep it healthy, everyday it looks worse than the day before. I move it around experimenting with different amounts of sunlight but to no avail. I saw somewhere that the plastic pot might be drying out the roots real fast and I do live in the midwest (St. Louis), and we have are share of heavy heat spells than the next week the temp will drop to a comfortable level.
Any help would be much appreciated, love the flower and want to see it strive
