  • Leave time for the soil to dry before you water them again, keep the soil moist, not too wet.
  • Also, remove any dead head immediately after you notice it, as new blooms should be encouraged.
  • Place your gerberas in a sunny windowsill where they can get approximately six hours of sunlight per day.
  • Find a semi-shaded area outside if you are growing them outdoors -- a shaded patio or veranda is ideal.
  • Expose your gerberas to average local temperatures.
  • Avoid temperatures above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, if possible, since heat may cause your gerberas to stop blooming.

  • Water your gerbera plants in the morning.

    Gerbera care

    Planting transplants from a garden store or nursery is the best way to plant gerbera daisy, as the plants are undependable and difficult to propagate from seed. Gerbera daisies thrive in well-drained soil improved by the addition of 2 to 3 inches of compost or manure.

    While the plants tolerate full sunlight, they perform at their best when exposed to morning sunlight and afternoon shade. When planting gerberas, ensure the crown of the plant - the point where the main stem joins the roots - is planted about 1 inch above the surface of the soil. This step is critical as gerberas tend to suffocate if the crown is buried.

    Sunlight Place your gerberas in a sunny windowsill where they can get approximately six hours of sunlight per day. Find a semi-shaded area outside if you are growing them outdoors - a shaded patio or veranda is ideal.
    Watering Water thoroughly, then allow top 1 inch (2.5 cm) to dry out between watering.
    Soil Check the soil of the site. If it is heavy or clay-like, you will need to amend it with compost, peat moss and sand. Gerbera flowers grow best in areas with slightly sandy, well-drained soil. Once you ve amended the soil, dig holes for your gerbera plants that are about a foot apart. These holes should be twice as wide as the flower s original container but no deeper.

    Planting any part of the gerbera s stem can cause the flower to rot. After planting the flowers, pack in the remaining soil firmly and water thoroughly.
    Temperature Cool to average 55-75F/13-24C.
    Fertilizer Feed every 2 weeks while in bloom with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
