4 o'clock very limp after moving

Gardener103April 19, 2014

Hello, everyone.

I just recently moved one of my 4 o'clock plants away from the side of it's pot. I thought that it wouldn't be good for it to keep growing against the pot wall.

It hasn't grown that much, just barely sprouted.

My issue is that right after I did so, maybe 30 minutes later, the leaves and stems were very limp. It hasn't withered, but it's not as springy as it was before.

I am very concerned, as I am trying to keep this seedling as healthy as possible. I moved it very carefully from the side to the center of the pot, and I didn't pull or grab it.

Any help or suggestions as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated.

More than likely "transplant shock" even if you just gently changed its environment only slightly. Leave it alone and see what happens.

I'll add my vote to the "leave it alone and see what happens" suggestion. Plants generally adjust themselves to the conditions in which they're grown.
