The Q&A Archives: Gerbera daisy

Question: Great foiliage but new flower buds are very weak then die off. Crown is elevated, watering from bottom not on leaves.

Answer: Weak flower stems often means the plant is not getting enough sunshine, or that it needs to be fed. Try a half strength dilution of water soluable ferilizer (such as Miracle Gro) every 2-3 weeks. If possible give the plant more sunshine. Hope it perks up for you!
