Ideal temperatures are 60 to 64 degrees F at night and 75 degree F Days. Temperatures in
this range will produce top quality Gerberas. They can tolerate warmer temperatures such
as 90 degrees F, although some heat delay will occur. Temperatures below 60 degrees F
will increase crop time significantly. For establishing plants after potting, a warm soil
temperature - 65 to 68 degrees F is beneficial during Winter months. Once plants are
established (2 - 3 weeks), temperatures can be reduced to 60 degrees F. This warmer
temperature promotes a vigorous root system that will increase quality later on.

A gerbera plant requires in most of the parts of Australia heating, the ideal temperature for a gerbera is night time 15-16 degrees. The absolute minimum for the night is 12-13 degrees, if the greenhouse temperature becomes below this temperature the gerbera plant will show the following effects (shorter stems, colour of flower change, and more chance of botrytis) The day temperature should be at least 17-18 degrees, .
