Fuchsia Plants
Q.

how can I save my fuchsia?

Zone I don't know | ablainebrown added on May 24, 2015 | Answered

The blossoms are wilting then turning brown and falling off the plant even before the blossoms are on for 2 days. I water it daily and I wonder if I am watering it too much. There are very few blossoms left and the leaves are curling. Some of the blossoms are just barely opening and fall off before they get a chance to open. What can I do to bring it back to life again? It was a Mother's Day gift from my daughter and I don't want her to think I just neglected her gift. Please Help!

Yes, it does sound like you may have overwatered your plant.
It may have developed root rot.

Allow it to try out and trim away any material on the plant that may have died.
Provide a good semi shade place for the plant.
