How to care for cut flowers
Fill a vase or container with fresh, cool water and add a floral preservative if desired. This will help to keep the water clean and provide essential nutrients to the flowers. Remove any leaves or foliage that will be below the water line, as they can rot and cause bacteria to grow in the vase. Keep your flowers in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight, drafts, or heat sources.
Flowers will last longer in a room with a temperature between 60-65°F. Check the water level in the vase daily, and add more as needed. Make sure to clean the vase and change the water every 2-3 days to prevent bacteria buildup. If you notice any wilted or dying flowers, remove them from the arrangement immediately to prevent the spread of decay to other flowers.
Regularly mist your flowers with water to keep them hydrated and to help prevent wilting. By following these simple steps, you can help your cut flowers stay fresh and beautiful for as long as possible. With a little bit of care and attention, you can enjoy the beauty of cut flowers for days or even weeks.
