Help my Mammoth Sunflower sprout?

ramathesonJune 14, 2011

It was transplanted a few days ago. The other two taken from the same pot are doing well. This one seems stunted, and the Q-Tips were holding it up for the first day. On the second day, it rose up a bit and isn't leaning on the Q-tips any longer.

Today, I noticed it was turning a bit yellow. I put it outside, to see if it's in shock from coming in. It's about 100 or so outside here in Phoenix. The seeds germinated and grew the first couple inches outside and were brought in. As I said, the other two are doing well, but this one isn't. I thought maybe it was the temp change, so put it outside today.

Any tips for nursing it back to health?

I transplanted one like this myself and found that it just had to come around in its own time. I shaded mine a bit and propped it up until it was ready to grow again --- it's still about three feet shorter than my other two plants that are about 9 or 10 feet tall. Good luck!
