Flower Care Instructions
In order to prolong the life of your flowers, here are a few tips to follow:
- Always keep your container filled with fresh water. The water level should be high enough to ensure that all stems are submerged in the water. When completely changing the water, also thoroughly clean the container.
- Every few days you should remove the flowers from the container and re-cut the stems. Cut them off approximately half an inch from the bottom of the stem. Cut the stem at an angle to allow the flowers to take up water as easily as possible. We recommend that you use floral scissors or a sharp knife to ensure a clean cut.
- Be sure to always remove any damaged or spent foliage or blooms that falls below the waterline.
- Most flowers are best displayed when they are away from direct sunlight, cooling and heating vents, not directly under a ceiling fan, or on top of radiators or televisions, which can cause the flowers to dehydrate. Avoid placing your fresh flower arrangement near ripening fruit, as the fruit releases small amounts of ethylene gas which may cause them to age prematurely.
