To thrive, Gerbera daisies require full sun and temperatures over 59 degrees Fahrenheit. The soil should be evenly moist, but not too wet, and this species of flower should be fertilized every 2 weeks with a micro-nutrient liquid fertilizer.
Gerbera daisies can be grown in pots or in a garden. When starting a Gerbera plant from seeds, plant the seeds immediately in a good propagation mix in indirect sunlight. Water after the soil has sufficiently dried because these plants are susceptible to root rot when the soil remains too wet for too long. People living in humid climates are encouraged to plant Gerbera daisies in well-draining pots, rather that in an outdoor garden, due to their tendency to suffer from rot and fungal diseases.
