Indoor Gerbera Daisies to Bloom
I brought 2 gerbera daisies inside for the first time. Neither of them bloomed more than 2 -3 times all summer. One plant has very few leaves as I have cut the bad ones out. It has 4 3/4 bloomed daises (yellow) and 6-7 tiny blooms starting at the base of the plant. I was shocked to see them, as there are so few leaves. However, the beginning blooms seem to stay about the same for several weeks and not growing much. The other plant (rust color) has yielded just a few blooms but the foliage is beautiful, lush and green. It has many new leaves growing all of the time. Does anyone know how long it should take for these baby blooms to grow up? And is there more I should do about the few in the other (rust color) pot? I water very carefully, and even though there isn't a lot of sunlight downstairs, perhaps bring them into my bay window with lots more sun would make them bloom faster? I appreciate any ideas on these and want to keep them indoors forever...if they will let me?
