You get a beautiful bouquet for, let's say, Valentine's Day but your gerberas are wilting! Gerberas are beautiful flowers but they are phototropic, so they turn to the light. On top of that they only last 7 to 10 days in water, so if your flowers are not very fresh they won't last much. So first make sure you use the flower preservative packet that comes with your flowers or make your own, there are a few tips that will help your cut flowers to be healthy.
If your gerberas already have droopy heads, or are looking for light, insert a green or clear drinking straw all the way to the top of the stem and your flower will look healthy again!
