Calibrachoa in general like it hot and to get slightly dry between waterings. If overwatered, they can be susceptible to a fungal infection or root rot. The general information for all Calibrachoa is full sun, and normal watering (this means water only when the top of the soil feels dry). It is self-cleaning, meaning no deadheading is required. The other possibility if the container is of mature size is the older leaves are just dying back, which can be a normal trait for a plant that is a couple of months into a growing season. Trailing plants are often helped by shearing or trimming back slightly, mid-season, to keep them from getting leggy. It also encourages new blooms on the new growth.
