I just wanted to say that the watering info for this plant is incorrect. All Gerberas need to be kept moist. They cannot be allowed to dry out. (This is according to the growing info included with my Watermelon Lollipop.) Please see my entry for the Watermelon Lollipop for other (different) info, which was taken directly from the growing instructions.
