You may be overwatering your gerberas. Maybe this will help: The optimum growing conditions for gerbera daisies include full sun and rich soil with good drainage; the correct temperature should be between 60 degrees Fahrenheit at night and 75 degrees during the day. They also like afternoon shade. Be sure to water thoroughly, let the soil dry completely, then soak again. Gerberas need frequent feeding during the growing season. Be vigilant about pinching off old leaves and flowers regularly, and protect them from snails.
