Gerbera jamesonii are propagated from division of the crown in summer and from seed. Allow flowers to dry on the plant, then remove the seedpod and shake out the seeds. Plant them just barely below the surface of moistened seed starting mix. Seed should germinate in 14-21 days. If seed has not germinated in this period it is likely it won't. (Some gerbera's produce only sterile seeds.)
