Yellow gerberas bought at el cheapo Asian run green grocer where you can buy an apple with spots all over it, which is fine, but you need to be selective as it could be rotten as well. Their flowers are not cheap though, but so convenient to buy without going to Prahran Market. These flowers are doing very well, R and I commented to each other after a week. After amazingly lasting two weeks, I took this snap. Perhaps one or two flowers had collapsed. Not bad after two weeks.
R kept changing the water, and the vase evidently, and removing the flowers whose stems had collapsed and it is unbelievable that three weeks later, three flower were still going strong. I've never known cut flowers last like that. I think the flowers may be expensive because they are very very fresh.
