My Acanthus Spinosus has collapsed and all the long stems almost look like they have wilted but I don't think its anything to do watering- can you help?



Have you checked it carefully for bugs? How old is the plant? Also check for ants' nests under it.

it has been very hot and dry so it could well be lack of water . give it a really good soak, several watering cans first thing and in the evening for the next week and see if it recovers.
