Follow these simple steps to ensure your flowers have the proper care.
Note: Icons will be placed in front of every below point. Please refer FAQ design for reference.
Inspect Me: Remove any protective packaging, such as foam or paper. Cut any straps and remove me from the box. Remove any foliage that would fail below the waterline.
Trim Me:Using sharp flower shears or scissors, cut my stems diagonally under cool, running water. Cut about an inch off of each stem.
Hydrate Me: Immediately after cutting the stem, place me in the prepared water. Ensure you fill the water to the top, as I tend to get really thirsty after traveling for so long.
Feed Me: If flower food is available, follow the package directions for adding it to the water.
Give Me Space: Ensure that you have sufficient room in each bucket for the number of stems you will be storing. Do not overcrowd your containers, as this may prevent me from blooming.
Check-in W/Me: Allow me at least 4 hours to hydrate. I can may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Periodically check the water levels, as I tend to drink a lot of water when I first arrive and you may need to refill my water.
Keep me cool: Keep me away from direct sunlight, drafts or extreme temperatures. I should be stored in a cool, dry area until you want to show me off.
Refresh My Water: Change water every 24 hours to keep me fresh, and extend my shelf life.
