How to transfer our gorgeous bouquets to a vase?
Vase, Water, Scissors
- Remember to wash your favorite vase with soap thoroughly before using it. Make sure you rinse it well to get rid of soap residue.
- Next, cut at least 0.5 to 1 inch off the stems at a sharp (45 degrees) angle. This will allow your flowers to rehydrate adequately.
- Remove excessive leaves to allow water to be funneled directly into the petal. Leaves below the water line must be removed to prevent it from decomposing.
- Fill your vase with clean water and remember to change your water daily. Flowers drink a lot of water. Therefore, it is not uncommon for large arrangement to absorb all the water in a vase within a day. Bacteria might also build up and absorbed by the flower which shortens its life.
- Do not forget to trim your stem each time you change the water or whenever it feels slimy. This allows fresh tissues to be exposed allowing your flower to absorb more water.
- Keep your flowers away from heat and bright light.
- Do not place your flowers next to ripening fruit or vegetables especially apples and bananas. It causes flower to die prematurely. Ripening fruits produce ethylene gas which induces the flower to drop its petals. (Flowers are precursor of fruit. Once a flower pollinate, it bears fruit so that seeds can be formed and the entire lifecycle of plant starts again. This is mother nature!)
- Remember to cut your stems with sharp scissors thus preventing the cells from damage.
