Hello Everyone,
I have a question about my carnations. I just bought a plant, fairly well established full of promising buds. I repotted in a suitable size pot a few weeks ago with potting soil. But now, the flowers and buds are drying up. Sort of becoming papery. The flowers dry up before they finish blooming completetly and the buds just look dry and feel empty and dead. I water it everyday, and i keep it outside ( temp in 90s F). I tried keeping it indoors for a while but it didn't help. Can anyone tell me what i can do differently? Thank you for any advice you can give me.

It could be transplant shock...if so, you'll just have to wait until the plant adjusts to its new pot.
