collecting seeds from gerbera daisy

Pulaski, GA

My gerbera daisy, in a pot in a warm sunny room of my house, had 4 blooms. When they died, they became "fuzzy" like dandelions. I'm wondering if I can collect the fuzzies and sprout them. Are they seeds? If so, how do you plant them? Any special conditions?

I also was interested in growing Gerbera Daisies from seed. I have tried on several occasions but have had very limited success. I went though thousands of seeds before I found any that were viable. It seems the seeds come in spells, if I ever find a bloom with viable seeds then there are usually a good percentage of them good. Most of the time none of the seeds are viable. I have managed to get several dozen to germinate but they never make it to maturity. I will keep trying. I have been able to increase my number of plants by division, that seems to be the best way for me so far. I am sure many of the Gerber Daisies are hybrids and may not even produce viable seed.
