Gerbera Daisy Care and Handling: Your gerbera daisies may arrive in a tray. Carefully remove them. They will appear limp and will need water to help perk them up.
First, cut 1″ off each stem and place in a vase or bucket of clean water that has flower food added to it.
The stems may need re-cutting after 3 days. When you are done cutting, put them in fresh water.
Keep them out of sunlight and drafts. Store in a cool place.
