  • water dropWater

    Gerbera daisies, including the Gerbera Everlast White, should be watered deeply whenever the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch; this could be once or twice a week depending on environmental conditions. It's best to water these plants in the morning to allow the foliage to dry throughout the day, which helps prevent disease. When watering, avoid getting the leaves wet and water at the base to ensure the water reaches the roots. Typically, you should use about one gallon of water per plant each time you water, ensuring you moisten the soil but do not oversaturate it, as gerberas do not like to sit in waterlogged soil.

  • sunLight

    Gerbera daisies need bright light with some direct sunshine, but they should be protected from the intense afternoon sun. A spot that provides morning sunlight with afternoon shade or dappled sunlight throughout the day would be ideal. Indoors, place them near a window that receives a lot of light but has some protection from the hottest sun.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Gerbera daisies prefer moderate temperatures and thrive in a range between 68 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. They can tolerate a minimum temperature of around 40 degrees Fahrenheit and a maximum of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. These plants do not do well in very hot or very cold temperatures, so it is essential to protect them from frost and extreme heat.

  • scissorsPruning

    Pruning gerbera daisies is primarily for removing spent flowers and dead or yellowing leaves to encourage new growth and more blooms. Deadheading, or cutting off the flower stems below the base of the flower, should be done regularly throughout the blooming season. The best time for more extensive pruning is in the late winter or early spring to remove old foliage and make room for new growth.

  • circleLife cycle

    Gerbera Everlast White begins its life as a seed, which, under suitable conditions of warmth and moisture, germinates to produce a small seedling. The seedling grows into a vegetative state, developing a rosette of long, dark green leaves close to the soil surface. As the plant matures, it produces a flowering stem with one or multiple large, daisy-like white flowers characterized by a vibrant yellow center. After pollination, these flowers will produce seeds, completing the reproductive cycle. The plant persists through a perennial life cycle, where it enters a period of dormancy typically during colder weather before resuming growth and flowering in the next season. Over time, the clumps may grow larger and can be divided to propagate new plants.

  • sproutPropogation

    • Propogation time


    • Propogation: The Gerbera daisy, specifically the Gerbera Everlast White variety, is often propagated through division, which is typically undertaken in late summer to early fall. In this popular method, the parent plant is carefully lifted from the soil, ensuring minimal damage to roots, and using a sharp knife or spade, the crown is split into smaller sections. Each section should have at least one shoot and a portion of the root system. These divisions are then replanted immediately, at the same depth they were originally growing, and watered thoroughly. Establishing a proper watering regime is critical for newly propagated Gerbera daisies; not too wet to prevent rot, yet moist enough to encourage growth. It is important that the new divisions are placed in a location with good light and ventilation to foster healthy development.
