Q.Does Lobelia Need More Shade Than Sun?

mollybabygirl added on June 14, 2011 | Answered

I put one plant of lobelia in a pot with other plants and it died. It was a 6 pack, so I have another 6 pack and don’t want to lose it. Also, is it fussy with watering?

It is not a fussy plant with watering, but if the root balls of the plants were dry when you planted them, this may be the cause of their dying. If the root balls are very dry, they may actually repel water after you plant them. Make sure the root balls are well watered before you plant them and keep them well watered for about a week.
