Yellow leaves that turn black and fall off are signs of over watering. The best chance of survival is ensured by keeping mums evenly watered.

Why are my potted mums turning brown?
Browning of the foliage and leaves can be caused by diseases, pests, and poor environmental conditions. Poor soil conditions can cause the leaf spot and brown rust. This can happen when plants are exposed to high levels of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, or other nutrients.
In addition, plants can become stressed and die if they are not provided with adequate amounts of water. Plants that are stressed may not be able to grow as well as they would if the plants were not stressed.
How often should you water mums?
Between waterings, don’t let your mother get too dry. Water your plants at least once a day. They like to get a small amount of water per week. This will help keep the roots from drying out too much.
If you have a lot of plants, you may need to water them more often than once a week, depending on the size of your plants and the amount of moisture in your soil. If you are using a potting mix, add a little more water to the mix each time you water the plants.
Should I cut off brown mums?
Take off wilted blooms and dead stems/leaves not only makes your mums look more beautiful, it helps your plant to bloom longer. Once the weather warms up, you can place your mums in the ground.
How do I revive my mums?
Give them a good soak after repotting, then water every other day or whenever the soil seems dry. If you allow your plants to decline, try to avoid it. They will revive after watering again, but the flower buds may not last as long or be as fragrant.
If you don’t want to use a potting mix, you can also try using a mix of peat moss, vermiculite, or a combination of the two. You’ll need to experiment to find the mix that works best for you.
Do mums like sun or shade?
How much sunlight do mothers need? Plants love the sun. They only need 6 hours of sunlight a day, but the more light they get, the better their growth and bloom. In warmer gardening zones, slight shade in hot, summer afternoons is appropriate to allow the plant to receive the maximum amount of light.
In cooler zones, it’s best to keep the plants in shade during the hottest part of the day when the sun is at its strongest. Lily care is similar to that of a sunflower, with the exception that they require less water and less care than sunflowers. They do, however, need to be pruned regularly to prevent over-watering, which can lead to root rot and other problems.
To prune a lily, you can use a pair of tweezers or a garden shears to remove the leaves from the stem. You can also cut off the stems at the base of each leaf, leaving just the top. The leaves should be left in place until the next growing season, when they can be removed and replaced with new ones.
How do you keep mums alive in pots?
Keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet, while your plant is in the pot. It’s a good idea to check the plants for hydration often. The leaves have time to dry during the day, so be sure to water them during the morning.
They should not be allowed to sit in the water for more than a couple of hours at a time. Mums can be kept in their containers for up to two weeks. If they are kept for longer than that, they will need to be moved to a larger container.
How do I save my potted mums?
The easiest way to keep your mum plants alive for next year is to bring the plants indoors. If you don’t have access to a greenhouse, you can grow your plants outdoors in a sunny window or on a patio. You can also grow them indoors if you have the space, but keep in mind that they will need to be watered more often than in the greenhouse.
Can you water mums back to life?
The same thing can happen if you allow the plant to dry out. To re-hydrate dry soil, put the mum pot in a bucket of water with a few inches of water and leave it to soak for a few hours. Don’t forget, the plant can drown if you don’t do this.
How long should potted mums last?
Plants with flowers that have already begun to fade should be avoided. Garden mums can be grown in containers or in beds with shrubs and flowers. The flowers last about two or three weeks depending on the outdoor temperatures and how far along the bloom was at the time of transplant.
Plant plants in a well-drained soil with a pH between 6.5 and 7.0. pH of the soil should not be too acidic, but not too alkaline, either. pH is too low, the plants will not grow well, and if it’s too high, they will be stunted and will die before they have a chance to flower.
Plants should be allowed to dry out between waterings, so that they do not over-dry out and die. When the plant is ready to be transplanted, it is best to transplant it into a pot that has a drainage hole in the bottom of it. This will allow the roots to drain into the pot, which will help to prevent root rot.
