Gerbera

The new Sweet range within the Garvinea collection boasts super-sized flowers in bold colors. This unique selection of garden plants features continuous outdoor flowering from early spring until first frost. They are resistant to pests, diseases and harsh weather conditions. Garvinea gerbera are well suited for gardens, borders, balconies and large pots.

Plant plugs in 31/2- to 8-inch pots with at least six holes at the bottom for good drainage. Use a sterile well-draining media with good aeration. Maintain pH at 5.5 to 5.8 and EC at 1.0 to 1.5. After potting, place the plants close together for a better micro climate.

Optimal lighting conditions are 1,850 foot-candles during weeks 1 through 3, 3,250 to 4,200 foot-candles in weeks 4 through 6 and 4,200 to 5,100 foot-candles in weeks 7 through 12.

Start irrigation when roots reach the bottom of the pot, preferably using a drip irrigation system. Make sure to start irrigating in the morning.

The use of growth regulators is not necessary for Garvinea. Do not use these regulators. In summer, plants will finish in 10 weeks. In winter, they will finish in 14 weeks.
