Whats wrong with my plants?

Post  scmelik on 4/13/2011, 9:09 pm

On monday the weather was gorgeous, not terribly windy (about 10-15) and about 65 degrees. I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to get my plants outside for some good sun. I put them about around 10 am and they stayed out untill 5 or 6, not in direct sunlight but not in the shade either. When I got home from the golf course they looked all wilted. At first I thought that they got a little beat up by the wind and figured that by the next day they would be fine once they were inside. Here is what they look like today, I know its tough to see in the picture but they all look like they are wilting and dying. They did dry out a bit so I added some water to them but they haven't seemed to come back at all.





Its about time that they get transplanted but with our current weather I want to wait a bit longer. I am thinking maybe transplanting them to some bigger pots for awhile will do them some good and help bring them out of it.

Aww, poor babies! Sad

Have they ever been outside before?

Conventional wisdom is that you get your plants used to being outside a couple hours at a time until you work your way up to a full day. If they've never been exposed to wind their little stems are not strong enough to handle extended periods of it.

Perhaps they are just in shock and wind whipped. Hopefully they come back, please keep us posted on their progress.

I have been putting them outside when I get home from work but I only get about 2 hours worth of sunlight and the heat fads FAST by the time i get home. This was the first time they were out for more than about 2 hours.
