I purchased (again and again) a hanging lobelia, as I never have success with them. I keep trying. Two days after buying it, it is dying. I've tried sun and shade, moving it several times a day to different areas to no avail. It always dies. Does it like moisture, dry, morning sun, afternoon sun, shade partial sun? What am I doing wrong? I need your help PLEASE!

It likes full sun, but try this to get them going:
Plant them in the container and water thoroughly. Then set it in a shady area for 1-2 days (to adjust to being planted). After that, move the plant to a sunny location. Water them two times a day for the first week and once a day after that. Also, make sure that it has good drainage in the pot.
