My hanging baskets - inpatients are succumbing to some sort of desease and I wounded if you can help me identify what is causing it One of the baskets has nearly all perished and it is now moving on to another one!
It is hard to say from this photo. It would be my guess that the watering habits weren't quite what they should be. It will be necessary to make sure that they dry out down at least 1/3 of the way into the container between waterings. Watering too much will cause disease, while underwatering will cause die off, as well.
Another thing to consider will be the amount of light that they receive. They cannot handle full sun, so they will need to be in a very shaded area.

through. I have holes on the bottom . I have watered very well and poked some holes in the soil its doing beautifully but why won't the water go through the bottom, otherwise the plant is beautiful. Thank you very much.
If you take it to the sink and let the water run in it, the water should come out the drainage holes. If the soil is compacted, the water would come out the top. I'm wondering if you are not adding enough water? How long has the soil been in the container? If it has been more than a year, the soil may have degraded. You may want to replace the soil with a good draining mix that contains perlite. If it's fresh soil from this season, try working a little perlite into the soil, without disturbing the roots. Even if you just add some to the top of the soil, it will work down when watered.
