Following these directions will help you gain the most out of your Gerbera's vase life.
Clean a vase by washing it thoroughly with water and a household bleach.
Fill the vase with fresh water and a few drops of household bleach. Do not stand the gerberas in a deep vase of water. They only need 5 cm/2 inches of water.
Carefully remove the gerberas from any packaging.
Cut the stems at an angle with a sharp knife at least 2.5 cm/1 inch or to your desired length.
Arrange the flowers in the vase.
Keep flowers in a cool room, out of direct sun and away from sources of heat and drafts, and continue to add a little bit of water every day.
Re-cut gerberas and replace water every 1-2 days.
