Hello I have a small indoor Hydranger and I've tried everything I can think of to make it pick up but it dosen't want to pick up  I've taken the flowers off as I read that it might help it to grow more but it's leaves just flop over and I've tried repotting it to no avail either it looked like a heathy plant when we got the shop and it has morning sun shine and afternoon semi shade but i really dont know what I've done wrong, I like hydrangers and whanted to plant it out when it got bigger but it really dosent look strong at the moment. Any help and advice would be really appreciated,

Thankyou

Hello, I would think that it needs to be outside, you could leave it outside during the day and bring it in when there is a frost forecast.  A lot of house plants suffer from overwatering, only water when the top of the compost feels dry, drain off excessisive water after 10 minutes.  Hope this helps and if it lives till after the frosts, you can plant it out.

Indoor heating can be a threat as well. It dries out the atmosphere. I'm with allaloubee in regard to the overwatering and taking it outside during the day.
