Guide and Tips to Care Flowers:
Cut the Stems
When the flowers arrive at home, you need to first cut the bottom of the stem one to two inches in an angle. This makes the flowers better absorb the water when putting them in the vase. After the initial cut, be sure to re-trim once every few days to expose fresh tissue that absorbs more water.
Remove the Dead Parts
Remove the dead petals and wilting leaves and stems to prevent bacterial growth. Check flowers daily to avoid bacterial rot.
Replenish Water Frequently
Flowers are alive just like us. Flowers need a lot of water to make them last longer. Keep the vase full of water to ensure your flowers will not be dehydrated. Make sure you change the water in your vase every now and then to help your flowers stay fresh.
Keep Away from Sunlight
Cut flowers are opposite to potted plants. Flowers will last longer in a cool area. Avoid putting your flowers in areas near windows, and any electrical appliances. It may cause direct dehydration of your flowers.
