Mop Head Hydrangea

Wilting Hydrangea

Anonymous added on March 4, 2011 | Answered

I recently received a beautiful mophead hydrangea with one big flower and several buds. In just a few days, they all wilted down. I have made sure the soil is moist. What can I do? Should I cut off the bloom and buds? It is an indoor plant. Could it be too warm inside for it?

It may be overwatered. Check the soil and make sure that it is damp, but not soaked. It should have drainage. Root rot alsomay have set in if it was overwatered in the past. Here is more information on that:
