Please save my Gerbera Daisy

flowerkingMay 13, 2013

it was all fine the last few days after I bought it last week. But since these few days the weather in Montreal just too windy, I brought the pot back from our balcony. Unfortunately, one-off he flower steam banded. I tried to save it by wrapping a wire around the banded stem. And I put the pot by the shower window for two days. Today I touched the mud is a bit dry so I water it. Then few hours later, I checked on it the leads and the flower petals got all flimsy. What did i do wrong and how i save it now?

Sorry nobody explained already, this forum is for making suggestions to the GardenWeb system.

If you are still seeking info about this plant, you may want to ask on the perennials forum. Generally, sounds like it was much too moist for this plant, which hails from Africa. Likes tons of sun, and to be quite dry before more water is added.
