What is the best way to prevent gerbera dasies from drying up?
Gerbera daisies are susceptible to a condition called foot rot, a fungus that makes the plant wilt due to damaged roots and stems. If they are too wet, they develop foot rot easily. There's no cure for this. The solution is to plant new plants in new soil, making sure the plants are not sitting in too much water. They do prefer moist soil, but it must drain well and not be soggy all the time. Rainy spring weather is probably to blame for your plants' problems. Gerbera daisies like cool temperatures, not much higher than 75 F.
