Q.My Lambs Ear Is Wilting.

Zone Auburn | Sometimesimme added on July 31, 2020 | Answered

I got my lambs ear from the nursery about two weeks ago. I planted him about a week ago. I think I may have over watered him because he is wilted now. Should I replant him in new soil? Can he be saved?

They are easy to overwater, even outside. Are you going to plant it outside in the garden where it can spread? It's not really an indoor plant. You can keep it in a pot outside if you like, but then you really need to make sure you don't overwater, because in a pot, it's even harder for the soil to dry out.

I would plant it outside if possible. If you must keep it in a container, it wouldn't hurt to change out the soil if you've kept it moist. Lamb's ear likes it dry.
