drooping sunflowersi also bought two sunflower potted plants locally. they were beautiful, full, and abundant with flowers. leaving them in their pots and after about one week, these vibrant plants started looking a little droopy, the leaves beginning to shrivel. i thought maybe they needed water, so followed the next few days with light spraying (it is currently 85-90's here). now all the flowers have dried up, with only one/two new ones blooming. what should i do? do i cut the dead flowers off? i'd hate to lose two large plants.
