The best indoor plant for July is the Gerbera Daisy. Gerbera Daisy plants, with 30 fellow varieties, are one of the most popular, frequently delivered and self-grown flowers across the world. Because of their bright and bold colours — red, orange, yellow, white, cream, purple and pink — they bring light to anyone who gives or receives them.
- Too much water and the roots will start to rot. Watering them by spraying water on their leaves will keep them looking fresh, but don’t put too much water on the roots.
- At the end of the season they will wilt, but they’re not dead, because they’re perennials. Gerberas are vulnerable to soil diseases and too much water results in root and crown rot.
- The best results are found in mild temperature areas where minimum night temperatures are higher than 6°C, so if you’re in a colder area, plant them in pots and bring them inside. Gerberas are not affected by maximum temperatures and can tolerate harsh sunlight. They thrive in a relative humidity that averages 65%.
- The Gerbera prefers full sun, so plant them in north-facing beds.
- They require well-drained soil.
