Hi,My fuschia is dieing Im pretty sure its due to over watering it. I normally water it in the evening, but will definitely switch to morning. How much water is a good rule of thumb? Also Im mainly concerned with how I can save it? How much and what parts do I cut down? Im a newbie to all of this!

hi i dont know what sort of fuchsia you have i would think its a bush as a hanging plant would drain on its own i would take the plant out of its pot let it drain so some air can get to the roots let it dry out for a couplr of days if the stem has gone black it could well be dead if you run you finger nail down the stem and its green it will be ok i would surgest a light prune to start new growth at the base of the plant as for watering in the future when the top of the pot is dry give ot a drink but dont leave the pot standing in water as fuchsias dont like wet feet i dont know what part of the usa you are in if its realy hot a would sray the plant in the morning and water at the end of the day when it cools down and feed the plant once aweek with a good food ie chem pak or tomato feed will do the trick hope this helps
