Q.Will a dead Calibrachoa plant revive?

Zone 10b | LAsDarkFireWolf added on July 13, 2018 | Answered

My entire calibrachoa plant seems to be dead. The plant is completely brown and dried out, I noticed it having such brown and dried parts and assumed it was getting too much sun and being burnt. So I did my best to give it shade to filtered sun. Keeping it watered daily. We recently had temperatures over 100*F. Will the plant come back? Should it’s sunlight be done more like a Dahlia’s, early morning more so?

These are, actually, quite sun tolerant and require as much as possible. During hotter times, they will appreciate a little shade, but they will still take the full sun just fine.

Can you include a photo? This will help me to see how it progressed, even if it is a dead plant. It is quite possible that they suffered from an infection in the soil.

Is this plant completely dead, or is there some green, living material still on the plant? This will determine the likelyhood of its return.

The entire plant's leaves are dry, even though in some of the pictures they have a green look to them.
