    Each flower will only last 24 hours. Sometimes a gardener misses the time that flowers are open, and may mistake them for flowers that didn't open.
    Make sure the plant is growing in full sun and receiving daily water.
    Check the plant for any signs of insects.
    Here are some links with more information.
