Q.Gazania Dying After Leaves Turn White.

Zone Karachi | Maidazia added on February 28, 2021 | Answered

I got them a week ago and had been watering them daily for 3 Days till I found out it’s for every three days. Now the leaves are turning ash white and the plant is drooping. It’s very hot where I live. Currently it’s 90°F This is my first time taking care of a plant and I really don’t know that much about gardening.

It is likely that they have been overwatered. This will cause root suffocation and disease.

From this point, it will be best to start with fresh plants, and make sure to use potting soil instead of native clay. Clay will not allow to gas exchange in container, and will suffocate plant roots in a pot.
