Is it possible to harvest gerbera seeds from a plant?

Yes but each flower yields low number of seeds sometimes none.

hi pebble, it's me.

yes, it is possible to harvest seeds from the plant.

the orange gerbera below was gotten from a yellow parent.

how many seeds you get will depend on how thorough you sweep the pollen across the stigmas.

here are the seedlings.

Ooooh lovely babies. I've only had two seeds germinate but the babies died before they could grow any true leaves. :(/>

hi tropicana,

keep trying and you will get it; it also took me a while.

Hi princess,
To yield viable seeds, did you cross-pollinate to another flower of another plant, another flower of same plant or on the same flower itself?
Any difference to the quality of seeds? I read somewhere self-pollination creates sterile seeds?
Thanks in advance.
dabbid.

I have been selling Double Gerbera seeds for the past 3 years and selling them to the growers in UK,USA,Aus and Thailand.I'll be posting a few of their pix soon.They are unique plants and will flower in 8 months from seeds.Germination rate is always upto 95%.

Horti sells Gerbera Flowering seeds. i tried some. the growth process is slow and internet says.. it takes 1 year to grow to max size. Just buy from FEF $8 a pot if you want to try Gerbera.. dont bother about seeds. $2.50 per pack and only 5 germinated.
