How to Grow Gerbera Daisies: Growing gerbera daisy plants is possible from seed, seedlings or division. Seed is the cheapest method, but seeds must be sown immediately as they lose viability quickly after opening. Keep in mind seeds may also not be true to form. Growing from seedlings or divided plants is easier and you can be sure what the flower type will be. If you have older plants, the crowns can be lifted and divided in early spring. Remove lower leaves and replant immediately. Gerbera Daisy Planting Guide: Plants thrive in a position with full sun and sandy soil. A little compost added at planting will encourage good flower growth. With newly sown seeds, a well-draining propagation mix is a must, as is bright indirect light. Crown rot is a common problem with gerbera daisies, which is caused by planting the crowns too deeply. The crown should be visible above the soil and allowed to dry out between each watering. Plants can be mulched, but care must be taken that mulch does not cover the crown. If you live in a wet or humid climate or have heavy soil, try planting in well-draining pots instead. How to Grow Gerbera Daisy Plants Indoors: If you can provide enough bright light to keep your plant happy, gerbera care indoors is minimal. Water the plant deeply whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Let the pot drain thoroughly before replacing it on the saucer or drip tray, as the plant is likely to rot in soggy soil. Water carefully and keep the leaves as dry as possible. Water sparingly during the winter months, but don’t allow the soil to become bone dry. Gerber daisies benefit from monthly feeding during spring and summer using a regular fertilizer for houseplants or blooming plants. Withhold fertilizer during fall and winter. Pinch off blooms as soon as they wilt to keep the plant neat and compact, and to stimulate more blooms. Remove damaged or dead foliage as needed. If the plant looks crowded, repot it to a slightly larger pot any time of year.
