This was flowering perfectly over a week ago (end April). I repotted in a slightely larger pot with compost w/ fertaliser, and the week later (after regular watering), leaves & flower stems are bendy and looking so sad. I then realised that the compost might be the problem (not perfect drainage for the plant), so I removed all the compost and put the plant back in the original container. After 4 days, it still looks the same. What should I do to help recover the plant?
