African Daisy with weak flowers

My african daisy which is in a pot was beautiful when I bought it, now the flowers are coming in small and sparse- any ideas? I am sure it is getting the right amount of light- I am in zone 7.

The bloom should last many weeks, but it will come and go, and it's not surprising that it is taking a rest after peaking. Full sun, consistent moisture, and regular feeding should work for African daisy. The feeding will be especially important as long as it remains in the pot.
