Carefully unpack the flowers as soon as they arrive, avoiding any rough handling that could damage them.
Trim at least an inch off the stems using a sharp, clean cutter to aid water absorption. Cut at a 45-degree angle to create a larger surface area for water uptake.
Place them in a vase with fresh, cold water. Make sure the vase is clean to avoid any bacterial growth.
Keep the flowers in a cool area, away from direct sunlight, radiators, or any heat-emitting appliances.
Maintain a high humidity level if possible, as most flowers thrive in humid conditions.
Ensure good air circulation around the flowers, but avoid placing them in direct drafts.
Change the water in the vase every 2 days or when it becomes cloudy, whichever comes first. This helps to keep the water fresh and free from bacteria.
Re-trim the stems slightly every time you change the water to enhance water absorption.
Remove any leaves that are submerged in water to prevent bacterial growth.
Nutrition and Protection
Use commercial flower food or a homemade solution (like a mixture of water, sugar, and lemon juice) to provide the necessary nutrients to the flowers.
Pest and Disease Prevention
Keep an eye out for signs of pests or diseases and take immediate action if spotted.
Avoiding Ethylene Gas
Keep flowers away from fruits and vegetables as they emit ethylene gas which can hasten the wilting of flowers.
Remove any wilting or dead flowers to prevent the spread of bacteria and to encourage the other flowers to last longer.
Ensure that the water level in the vase is sufficient, topping it up as needed.
