I notice the leafs on my Gerbera are crumbled as per the photo below. Since this is the first time i keep Gerbera, can someone tell me if this is normal?

Many thanks.

hi aquareef,

i don't think it's anything to worry about. see if the symptom spreads to other leaves -- perhaps it's just heat stress or something.
also, check underleaf to see if it's disease-related. if worried about spider mites, mist yr plant (underleaf esp) twice a day...
personally, i find it all too troublesome -- so i do my watering and leave them as they are... and tho the leaves aren't super luscious/nice, the plants still bloom ok.
