Answer: Gerbera jamesonii or Transvaal daisy is native to South Africa. Gerbera's thrive in full sun and rich soil with excellent drainage. Water them deeply, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Incorporate compost into the flower bed before you plant your gerberas, and then feed frequently during the growing season. They'll produce new leaves and flowers if you regularly pinch off old leaves and flowers.
Gerbera daisies are fussy about watering. Try not to splash water on the crown of the plant. Gerbera daisies like the nightime temperature to be about 60F degrees, and the daytime temperature about 75F. The plant will take full morning sunshine, but appreciates some afternoon shade in hot climates.
