Gerber Daisy

Postby rosie » Jul 27, 2008 12:10 pm

Has anyone ever kept a gerber daisy as a house plant. I had one last spring that I have been babying along hoping for a blossom but no such luck. Lots of new leaves though. I fertilize and keep in lots of light. Am I wasting my time?

Keeping it as a potted indoor plant will make it a short-lived plant. I would put it outside for the summer, keep the soil evenly moist and give it a balanced fertilizer like Miracle Grow.

Thanks for the advise. I will try to bring it to blossom again. They are such lovely flowers.
