Have you been fertilising them regularly since you received it? They can be heavy feeders...

They also need sun... Does it get direct sunlight at its position? Sunlight will give it the extra energy needed to flower. It can survive on just bright ambient light but to flower it needs to get direct sunlight.

The reason for your gerbera not flowering could be because of over watering. Water it on alternate days if you are growing it in a plastic pot. For fertilizers I prefer compost or vermiculture. Give maximum sunlight, then see the result.

Hi,

wana comment on the watering part.. I got a pink gerbera plant too and I don practice watering the soil as my 1st gerbera died from improper watering. What I do now is merely thoroughly mist the leaves twice a day to prevent any spider mites. The plant is doing wonderful and is sprouting new shoots for me. Note that I don water the soil only the leaves.. Not sure if anyone out there is doing what I'm practicing thou..

Place mine next to the corrdor ledge and they receive plenty of sun everyday. I do trim away the yellow leaves that I see normally on the underside of the plant. No flowers yet but the plant looks really good. Start with a healthy plant before enjoying the blooming process.. ^_^/>

Sasa,

I did what u did too initially,top down and mist the leaves but I ended up having powdery mildew aka fungicide problems.
Oh well... not doing that with my 2nd Gerbera though. What did u do to prevent those from growing..?
