Gerberas Care Instructions

.
Gerbera Care Instructions Discovered in 1884 near Barberton, South Africa, by Scotsman Robert Jameson, the Gerbera is the 5th most popular flower, and the most popular daisy variety. Simple yet sophisticated, the vibrant colored Gerberas are the birth flowers for the star sign Leo (July). A beautiful compliment in any floral bouquet, we ship each individual floret with a protective net and a clear tube to support the stem, to ensure that the flowers arrive and flourish to their maximum beauty and expected vase life.
.
Gerberas Estimated Vase Life: 4 – 7 days
.
Gerberas Meaning: (orange) You are the sunshine of my life, (red) Unconscious in love, (white) Innocence; Truth (yellow) I'll try harder to win your love
.

Gerberas Care Tip:

Gently remove the protective cup from each blossom; the petals will gradually unfold to their full state. Fill your vessel with approximately 5 to 6 inches of water depending on its height. The fuzzy stems of these flowers decompose quickly in deep water. Gerbera stems are highly susceptible to bacteria blockage which may cause their heads to droop over. Therefore it is very important to use clean water and replenish their supply of flower food every 1-2 days.
Bending is a natural attribute of this flower.

Gerberas Arranging Tip:

Gerberas may be prone to bent neck, which can be avoided by inserting floral wire in the stem to lend additional support to the large floret.

.

Gerberas IMPORTANT TIP:

To make sure gerbera stems remain straight, support the flower heads when conditioning in water. This can be done by placing a piece of chicken wire over a deep bucket, so that the heads are supported and the stems hang free into the water. Let the flowers hydrate this way for several hours
