    Hi,

    Our euphorbia plant came in a pot with our bamboo plant (1 gallon).
    We transplanted the euphorbia plant to a sunny location in our garden.
    Now it's not doing well after 2 wks after transplant.
    The leaves and flowers are limping, and leaves are turning brown.

    Our soil is slightly acidic, lots of organic material and full sun exposure.
    I don't think I'm over watering the plant, but there is mulch around the plant.
    Maybe this could be a problem.
    I will try to remove the surrounding mulch to dry up the soil a bit.

    I dont' want to get rid of the plant, I'd like to save it.
    Our garden consist of mostly drought tolerant plant.

    Thanks.
    M

    Its possible you are over watering the plant.......it could also be the fact its getting warmer now and you damaged the roots when you moved it.

    Transplant shock, the top was affected by root loss.
