Fuchsia

Zone Westby Wisconsin 54667 | Lori Hayden added on June 15, 2016 | Answered

How can I grow my fuchsia full and bushy? It looks like it wants to die. I think it may need to be repotted, to lighten the soil and increase drainage.

I would not advise repotting your plant at this time. The hanging basket is quite appropriate to the size of your plant.
The potting medium is likely a light mix that drains well.
You plant needs a morning light and afternoon shade location that is sheltered from wind.
Container plants will need to be watered daily and even twice a day when the temperatures are warm.
Here are some articles to refresh you on the care requirements.
