GENERAL FLOWER CARE
4 General Rules
• It is critical to keep fresh flower in water at all times as they continue to absorb water even after they are cut. Exposure to air — even for a brief time — may cause the water-absorbing cells in the stem to shrivel and seal over. This can dramatically shorten the life span of the flower bouquet.
• Re-cut the fresh flower stems diagonally under running water every few days. Trimming flower stems at an angle prevents them from sitting flat on the bottom of the vase, which can block water uptake.
• Remove any leaves that may be submerged in the water in your vase. These will rot and create bacteria, which can shorten the life of your flower bouquet.
• Display your flowers in a place protected from direct sunlight. High temperatures cause flowers to mature at a faster rate, which can shorten the lifespan of your bouquet.
