Gepubliceerd op

Enjoy your gerberas for as long as possible!

  1. Use a clean vase. It is best to clean it with chlorine.
  2. Fill the vase with about 10 cm of water. Make sure the water level is not too high: the gerbera stems could rot.
  3. Add a few drops of chlorine to the water. This makes all bacteria disappear from your vase.
  4. Cut the stems with a sharp knife. This allows the flowers to absorb more water. 
  5. Use cut flower food if you have a mixed bouquet with other flowers.
  6. Keep the gerberas away from draft, heat, sun and the fruit bowl.
  7. Change the water regularly, clean the vase and then cut off a piece of the stem again

Enjoy your gerberas!
