Hi

Gerbera daisy comes in and out of bloom when grown in the garden. However, if grown indoors it will often not rebloom. You don't say where your plant is growing, but if it's indoors you may just want to toss it. Outdoors, be patient and it will come back again. Just be sure to keep these plants slightly moist. In Illinois, these plants are annuals and will not tolerate outdoor conditions after frost hits.

I don't know where you live or if you have it in a pot or in the ground. They prefer being in the ground and will die down on their own [dried up leaves]. You can pull off the bottom leaves as the crisp to keep it tidy. Here they grow outside and bloom about 9 of 12 months in the year. I put pansies around them so when they die down for those 2-3 months here, I have pansies to keep the color until the gerbers reappear. Hope this helps, Happy gardening! [SC]
