Q.Sad Looking Sunflowers
I bought some little sunflowers from a supermarket and found some new heads growing. So I cut back some of the leaves to give them more light and they began to grow fast. But they look very sad; they are not fully out yet and are drooping down. I think they’re of the dwarf kind. I have repotted them too, which they seem to like as are growing rapidly. About 5 heads. Please, can someone advise? Thanks.

They may not be getting enough water. Sometimes the soil of a plant can get overly dry, and it will actually start to repel water. You can correct this by submerging the pot in water until air bubbles stop coming out.
Also make sure that there are drainage holes and that the water is able to drain away so that the plant does not develop root rot.
