Marachino Salvia Plant

Anonymous added on August 12, 2012 | Answered

I bought 3 marachino salvia plants 5 days ago and planted them. I have been watering them once a day. The leaves are turning yellow with brown spots and starting to fall off. Am I over watering or under watering?

Since they are newly planted, it could be they are experiencing some shock. However, if the soil is staying too moist (or wet), it could be harboring a fungus as well. Back off on the watering if the soil is moist and treat the plants with a fungicide.
