Hello, i have big problen with my gunnera.
The plant grows normal but for some reason the leafs dry out and crumble. Maybe its the sun or the heat. But i dont know how that could happen, the plant grew in full sun and the leafs should have been strong against sun.

Gunnera are bog plants. Are you watering it enough?

Yep, we have very hot days this summer and i always give it enough water and stands in a coaster filled with water. Maybe i forgot on somedays to water it enough.

You mean its in a pot? I'm trying to visualize this..... Confused Not working. Unless you have it in a pot thats at least 50 gallons, I can't see it surviving that way.
