Important Tip for Gerberas – Fill the vase only 5-6 inches as fuzzy stems of these flowers decompose quickly in deep water. Red 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. Also gerbera daisies 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 or by leaving the clear tube left on to protect the stems from bending.

Your red gerberas may be prone to bent neck, which can be avoided by inserting floral wire in the red gerbera stem to lend additional support to the large floret. Otherwise we advise you leave the clear tubes as they will only serve to provide additional much needed support to large floretted red gerberas you receive.
