Why are flowers wilting?

I'm starting to grow plants indoors and planning on transferring them out to a greenhouse. At first, I had them in my basement which was too cold for them to grow so I've moved them upstairs. They are getting sunlight and water, they bloomed, but now they are wilting after only a week or two. What am I doing wrong? Is there something more I can do for them before the weather breaks and I can transfer them outdoors?

blooming could be a sign they were stressed possibly from being transfered from cold to warm temperatures too quckly. The plant was afraid it was going to die so it produced flowers in an atempt to secure reproduction thus using up all of its available energy.
