These will not tolerate a very nutrient rich soil. The miraclegro is burning them. You will need to change the soil, and only fertilize VERY sparingly once per year. Usually the nutrients found in water, especially spring water, will be more than enough, as these are light feeders.

Additionally, I would only water when the soil is almost completely dry. This will help keep it from getting an infection.
