Asking again: Flower help! *With pics this time*

I asked about this last night, but now I have a picture!

Here's a couple photos of the potted flowers I received yesterday:

^^ The only bloomed flower. Pink and white petals, with a "fluffy" inside and somewhat purple inside.

^^ From the side. Sort of thicker steams and really leafy.

So what is this? How do I care for it? How often do I have to water.

Seriously new at this and determined not to kill it... so any info would be appreciated!

  • ok from the looks of them they are Gerber Daises. They need to be kept at a temp around 70 degrees. They need adequate sunlight for optimal bloom time. Water them evenly, meaning enough to soak the soil but not overwatering and when not in bloom they don;t need to be watered as much. Everyday once a day. If bringing them outside DO NOT water them first thing in the morning b/c any water that has been on the petals or leaves will scorch it. evenings are best. Remove and dead flowers or petals b/c they will just deplete the water from the healthy blooms. I would add a small teasspoon of miracle grow to the water i am adding it will help them thrive and produce vibrant colors. I hope that this helps!! Good luck!!

  • It looks like a variety of sunflower. Id say water when it's dry, or about every few days give it a little drink. There should be a care instructions card in there somewhere. Put it near a sunny window.

  • I'm not sure. Just googled "Gerber Daisy" and in all the photos, the petals seem more rounded...whereas these are quite pointy.
    I feel like such a newbie! Ha ha

  • No care instructions card. Lowe's was delivering these door to door as a promotion for their new store nearby, and the only thing in there was a $10 off card! Ha ha

  • Definitely a Gerbera Daisy- I saw a pot of these at Lowe's this morning when I was houseplant shopping(again! lol) and wondered if that was what you had. Congrats! I have never had one and don't really know what kind of care they need. Beautiful, though!
