Gerbera Daisie gets shorter

Posted by tropicsnut (My Page) on

I've noticed that my gerbera daisies are of different height when it flowers too many. Some open while their stalk is midget size. Some open with half their petals missing. What nutrients is it missing? Is it a disease? Please help.

Most likely the missing ingredient is water.
Or, perhaps they are in too much sun....noticing your name.
