Having trouble keeping your flowers fresh? Well here are some tips and tricks to have longer lasting flowers.
Cut the Stems
Cut the stems at an angle for about one to two inches. It allows the flower to intake more water because its stem does not sit on the bottom of the vase.
Remove Outer Petals
Remember to take old outer petals in order to prevent contamination of bacteria with the whole flower.
Fill a Clean Vase with Tap Water
Fill a clean vase with just about the right amount of tap water to prevent drowning the flower. It is important to use a clean vase to prevent any bacteria from contaminating the flower.
Add Flower Food to the Vase Filled with Water
Add a whole pack of flower food to provide the needed nutrients the flower initially gets from mother nature.
Avoid Direct Sunlight, Drafts, and Heat
Avoid direct sunlight, drafts, and heat to prevent premature dehydration.
Re-trim Stems and Replace Water
Don't forget to re-trim the stems and replace the water every 2 to 3 days to maintain absolute freshness.
