Gerbera


This is my first Gerbera! It was also the first bloom from my care after around a year with no blooms at all! Sadly, it only lived for 4 or 5 years...severely damaged by the El Nino phenomenon of year 2006/2007.

That's a gorgeous gerbera. Too bad they die so easily (in my experience).

Hello Aaron. Yup, Gerberas are really hard to please...this first gerbera lived the longest among the daisy plants I owned. Most of my Gerberas died from root and crown rot. Currently, I take care of the cheaper gerbera species with smaller flowers. :) Thanks for dropping by!
