Meaning: Beauty & Innocence
Buying & Caring:
- When buying Gerber daisies (aka Gerberas), look for flowers with stems that are firm and not bent near the flower head. Make sure the petals are not falling off or bent. They will turn brown quickly if they’ve been creased.
- Some florists slide a Gerbera straw up the stem to help support the flower head.
- Keep the water in the vase of your gerberas fresh, but at a low level. Gerberas love to drink water. If you put too much in the vase, the flower will drink it up and then become heavy and fall over. Replace the water every three days with cold water and watch the level closely so it does not dry out.
