Dandelions Wilting

Hello, my dandelions have been very wilted lately, and nothing I've been doing seems to help. I tried watering more, watering less, and giving them deeper soil with fertilizer. The only thing I hadn't tried until today was giving them more light. The window they were at doesn't get direct light, so I just moved them under a grow light to see if the increased light makes a difference. Does anyone know what the problem might be? Thanks. #dandelion #wilting

They do look like they're reaching for more light. You can't really give them too much.
Thank you!!
Dandelions have no trouble growing all over my yard and in my garden and I am perpetually trying to get rid of them. I’ve never seen one having any trouble growing. Here, they are considered a noxious weed. I do know some people like to eat them. May I ask why you are trying to grow one? Just set it outside @elithalberg
@AC73LoveCats They're considered a weed here too, but they're one of my favorite plants, and I don't think my neighbors would appreciate my growing them outside where they can spread their seeds into other yards. 😅
This one is doing much better since I repotted it in a higher-nutrient soil mix and put it in a full-sun window!
