so that our creations bring joy for a long time
Cut all the stems of the bouquet at an angle before placing them in a vase. This increases the surface area of the plants for water absorption. Also, remove any leaves and thorns that come in contact with water to prevent rot.
Make sure that the vase you use is well cleaned and fill with lukewarm water. Also note that some types of flowers, such as tulips, hyacinths, calla lilies, or daffodils, do better if they are just a few inches of water.
Change the water and clean the vase every two days to remove bacteria and fungi. When using a preservative, it is sufficient to top up the water that is missing, as flower care products contain active ingredients that inhibit bacteria and rot.
Also cut the flower stems every other day so that the plants can absorb enough water.
Never expose bouquets to too much sun or heat! Drafts also shorten the lifespan of cut flowers. Also, avoid being near fresh fruit or televisions.
