My gerbera plants are getting soaked by the rain. I'd recently cut the crown of the mother plants in half to propagate the plants and half of the plants look a little sad. The recent bout of heavy downpour has not helped. Should I bring the ones that are looking kind of sad indoors and let it dry out and rejuvenate itself before bringing them out again? Indoor gets some morning sun. Not a lot.

Gerbera don't like water. They can handle dry out in between. When exposed to rain they rot rather fast. So would be good to shelter them from rain. So keep it on the dry side these few day. The plant will recover.

Thanks for the encouragement. I've just brought them out to get some sun. Will bring them in again if and when it starts raining. My poor plants.
