<p>Hello,</p>
<p>Here are a few possibilities for what could be wrong:</p>
<p>Watering issues: Primula candelabra prefers consistently moist soil but not waterlogged conditions. If the new location is overly damp, it may be causing root rot, leading to the plant's decline.</p>
<p>Fungal or bacterial infection: The black splodges on the leaves could indicate a fungal or bacterial infection. Moist conditions and poor air circulation can create a favorable environment for such diseases to develop.  </p>
<p>Light conditions: Primula candelabra thrives <a href="https://www.myaccountaccess.one/">MyAccountAccess</a><span data-sheets-value="{"1":2,"2":"MyAccountAccess Onliner"}" data-sheets-userformat="{"2":801,"3":{"1":0},"8":{"1":[{"1":2,"2":0,"5":{"1":2,"2":0}},{"1":0,"2":0,"3":3},{"1":1,"2":0,"4":2}]},"11":3,"12":0}"> </span>in partial shade or dappled sunlight. If the new location receives excessive direct sunlight, it could be causing stress to the plant, leading to leaf damage and flower drop.</p>
<p>To help revive your primula candelabra, you can try the following steps:</p>
<p>Check the soil moisture: Ensure that the soil is consistently moist but not waterlogged. Avoid overwatering and make sure the pot or planting area has proper drainage.</p>
<p>Improve air circulation: If the new location is damp and lacks airflow, consider relocating the plant to an area with better ventilation. This can help prevent fungal or bacterial infections.</p>
<p>Provide appropriate light: Ensure that the primula candelabra receives the right amount of light. If it's currently in direct sunlight, consider moving it to a spot with partial shade or dappled sunlight.</p>
<p>Remove infected leaves: If the leaves have black splodges due to a fungal or bacterial infection, carefully remove and dispose of the affected leaves to prevent the spread of disease.</p>
