- Gazania is not heat-sensitive and grows best at 18 - 30 °C / 64 - 86 °F.
- Gazania may need up to two weeks to sprout. After sprouting you will see a beautiful deep green foliage forming.
- To prolong Gazania flowering period in your indoor garden it is suggested to leave just one or two strongest seedlings in one pod, just gently pull out extra seedlings or transplant them to the pods that did not spout, if there are any.
- Gazania flowers appear about 50 days after planting and come in various bright colors, with yellow, orange, and even red petals, along with beautiful deep green foliage.
- While the plant is growing remove any debris. It is only natural that some lower leaves may die back as the plant matures.
- Gazania withered flowers require deadheading so that the plant would have the resources to produce even more flowers, not seeds. It is best done on a sunny day - then you can see which flowers do not open to bloom and you can remove those withered flowers with the stem, make sure you leave young emerging flowers to bloom. If the flower is still firm and its petals are flat- keep the flower.
- Attention! Gazania is not an edible flower.
