Floral arrangement care tips

If properly cared for, floral arrangements can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. Taking care of floral arrangements involves several steps to ensure that the flowers stay fresh and beautiful for as long as possible. Here are some general guidelines to help extend the life of your flowers:

  1. Change the water: The water in the vase should be changed every 2-3 days to prevent bacteria growth and ensure the flowers have fresh water to absorb.

  2. Trim the stems: Trim the stems of the flowers every few days to help them absorb water better. Cut at a 45-degree angle to increase the surface area of the stem and expose the plant tissue to water.

  3. Remove wilted flowers: Remove any wilted or dying flowers from the arrangement as they can release bacteria that can harm the other flowers in the arrangement.

  4. Keep them away from direct sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the flowers to wilt and fade more quickly, so keep the arrangement in a shaded area or away from direct sunlight.

  5. Use flower food: Use flower food that comes with the flowers or make your own by mixing sugar, vinegar, and bleach in the water. This will help the flowers last longer by providing them with nutrients and preventing bacteria growth.

  6. Keep them cool: Heat can cause the flowers to wilt and fade, so keep them in a cool area. Avoid placing them near a heat source such as a radiator or heating vent.

  7. Consider the placement: Place the arrangement in a location where it won't be bumped or knocked over. Also, keep it away from fruit, which can release ethylene gas that can cause the flowers to wilt more quickly.

  8. Remove leaves: Remove any leaves that will be submerged in water as they will decompose and create bacteria that will shorten the life of your flowers.

  9. Use clean water: Use clean, fresh water to fill the vase. Change the water every two days or when it becomes cloudy.

By following these tips, you can help your floral arrangement last longer and stay fresh and beautiful.
