I bought a desert rose last summer - I repotted it like instructions told me to and have it inside in front of window with daylight in am and sun on it in the afternoon. It buds out but then the green turns brown. Help please. Thank you

Buds dying off could be due to watering issues, lack of sunlight or even disease or pests.
Check the soil to make sure it is not remaining to wet between waterings. Soil should be of a good draining mix of soil and sand.
Full sun location is needed to make this fussy tropical plant happy!
