CUT FLOWER CARE FAQ:
How can I make my flowers last longer?
Proper flower care is relatively simple, but it can make a huge difference in extending the life of your flowers. Just make sure to change the water regularly and keep the flowers in a cool (65-72 degrees Fahrenheit) place. If you’re willing to make an extra effort, you can try misting the flowers gently; this won’t make a dramatic difference, but may help keep your flowers hydrated.
Should fresh cut flowers be placed in direct sunlight?
Once they are showcased cut flowers need to be placed in indirect lighted areas. Direct sunlight only accelerates the evaporation of the water and causes the flower to dry out faster and wither.
Is it okay to remove the thorns from my roses?
Removing thorns is not something that we recommend as their removal results in “wounds” that are an invitation to micro-organisms and bacterial infection.
What do I do if the water becomes clouded and the buds droop?
You probably florgot to remove the leaves from the bottom of the stems. Remember that the leaves must always be removed along the part of the stem that is in the water inside the base. Too much water in the base can also cause the same effect.
How long do fresh cut flowers usually last?
Depending on the flower variety itself, fresh cut flowers can last up to three weeks.
