For Easter my Mom gave me this grow-yourself-a-Gerbera package. They were my favorite flowers when I was a kid. Apparently, Gerberas are the fifth most used cut flower in the world. Huh.
Since I possess a black thumb when it comes to gardening, I don’t really own any flowers or plants. There’s a tree right outside my window that makes it a little bit green. Tending my Mom’s flowers when she was away never really went to well. I just tend to forget them and most flowers don’t take too kindly to that. So getting this package is part of a challenge. Will I finally overcome my black thumb and actually grow something?
The kit comes with a small, adorable (albeit plastic) pot that has two holes in the bottom for drainage, a package of artificial soil and three small packets of seeds. So yesterday I went ahead and planted my first four Gerbera seeds. You just pour in most of the soil, add seeds (don’t drop them down the sink like I nearly did) and cover with the rest of the soil, then water until damp. Easy, right? Well, the hard part will be seeing if anything actually comes from it. The label says you should be able to see seeding after 10 days. Are you as curious as I am?
