We received some pots containing plants or empty pots from friend who is going to go back to Malaysia soon about two weeks ago. Its been raining almost everyday so I did not have the chance to welcome our new plants and sort out which need to be taken care first. Sunday morning the sun got the chance to shine before the rain came pouring again in the afternoon. I only managed to give my attention to this plant only before I am totally drenched. What do you think this is? We are guessing it is gerbera.
I tried to grow gerbera by seeds in different season before but the seed never germinate. Some resources said it is better with fresh seeds. Other resources said divide the gerbera plants with their own sets of roots intact in cool weather. So this time I divided the gerbera plant with their own set of roots and re-planted them in ground and pots. I managed to divide them into 4 identical plant (they still has the same gene don’t they).
I found this eggs attach on the roots when I was dividing them. Mik said it was earthworm eggs! I was a bit sceptical. Whose egg do you this belong to?
This plant look much better on its new home. Hope they produce beautiful flower soon. Wonder what is the flower colour will be.
Our gerbera is cheerful again leaving winter behind. Seems to be thriving in Adelaide current temperature. My Little Potted Garden blog has many beautiful variety of gerberas growing in her garden.
