Indoor Care: Place your Gerbera in an East, West, or South window in bright, indirect
sunlight. It will flower for several weeks. For 6.5″ pots water twice weekly with 1 cup of water. Use a 1/2 cup for 4.5″ pots. Water more frequently if the plant appears wilted in between watering. However, over-watering will cause the root and stem of the plant to rot. Remove fading blooms and yellow foliage to encourage new growth.
