Tending your cut-flowers should be fun. Don’t let a single bloom from a bouquet go to waste immediately cause you can still do some steps that will make your flowers last longer for a lengthy indoor decoration. Flowers give colours in a room so follow these simple tips and have these blooming for long.
Here are our care guide and tips:
Clean your Vase
Maintain the cleanliness of your water vase to prevent the development of bacteria and viruses that can kill your cut-flowers. Donu2019t leave your vase to dry without properly cleaning it, as these bacteria and viruses may kill another set of new bouquets in no time. You can clean your vase using a quart of warm water.
Change Water Regularly
Change the water in your vase from time to time because it is necessary to maintain a good amount of water for the flowers to stay gleaming, and to avoid drying and wilting. Changing the water regularly also prevents the formulation of an awful smell.
Clean and Healthy Water
A little amount of sugar into the water helps to nourish the flowers, and speed up the opening of the blooms. And with a little amount of vinegar or lemon that is stirred properly, the growth of bacteria and viruses in the water can be obstructed. This will keep your flowers fresher for a longer period.
Remove Lower Leaves
Lower leaves of your cut flowers should be removed so there wonu2019t be any in the water. In any case, that there are leaves that had dried, also remove them as soon as you notice them before inserting the flowers back into the vase. This will boost the capability of the fresh stems to absorb more water faster and better.
Use Sharp Knife to Cut
Cutting the stems with a dull object is a big no-no, as this can damage the tissues, and can obstruct the water absorption process of the flowers. Also, when you are to cut the lower end of the stem, take an inch or 2 off it at an angle while it is underwater.
Keep in Good Temperature
Do not place your cut flowers under direct sunlight to avoid the flowers from drying out more quickly.
Keep Away from Toxic Environment
Flowers are sensitive from cigarettes and poisonous materials, thatu2019s why we need to keep them away from toxic fumes and radiations like humans. A polluted environment can damage them so let them have fresh and clean air.
