You can fit gerbera daisy care around your own personal circumstances. Even though the origins of this beautiful blooming flower lie in Africa, it is possible for you to cultivate your own plants in cooler climbs or even in your home. For readers who are considering keeping their daisies indoors, they should take pride of place near a window that gets plenty of sunlight, staying in an environment which has a median temperature that lies at around 70 degrees F. Yes, gerbera daisies do originate from the extremely hot South Africa, but even these flowers cannot manage intense heat of 90 degrees F unless there is some shade to look forward to!

There are some visual warning signs that your gerbera daisies might not be receiving the best care, and do remember that pests such as aphids that may frequent your plant can be removed very easily with your own green fingers. Unlike many plants where you can just fill up the watering can with cold water, your gerbera daisies will need warm water in order to be kept in the best condition imaginable. If you see darker blotches that are present on the petals of the gerbera daisies, this is an indicator that you have some flowers screaming out for attention.

It may seem like a lot of effort, but there are plenty of advantages to going the extra mile with gerbera daisies. The size of the blooming flowers is more than generous, there are plenty of vivid colours that will add a summery feel to a garden or conservatory, and these plants can last for weeks, if not months in the right climate.

The Gerbera plant will preferably need a bright light location in addition to moderately moist soil. You will need to water the plant thoroughly at the time when just the soil surface area feels dry to the touch. Make sure that the plants do not stand in water. Use a pair of scissors to snip off any spent flowers just at the stem base.

Remember that there are roughly 30 species of the Genus Gerbera in the wild.

One of the best sites for care tips as well as plenty of other useful tips on Gerbera daisies is www.gerbera.org. It is the official website created by The Gerbera Association. It even offers valuable advice on various diseases that could possibly afflict the plant.

When the flowers die do you trim them at the base of the stem of the base of the flower?

I was given a pottery planter with gerbera daisies--since it will be in the house and has no drainage, how do I care for it?
