Hi every one my name is Megan and I have a couple of Gerber dasiy plant in containers they always seem to grow this mold on the leaves but the plant other wise is very healthy just wondering if a trait or if theres any thing I can do to fix this problem?

Thanks Megan

Mold grows when there is dampness so maybe the air isn't moving around where you have the plants.

I wonder if it's powdery mildew? A quick Google search seems to indicate that gerbera daisies are susceptible to powdery mildew. Here is a link to some information:
