Tips to lengthen the life of your cut flowers

Our flowers are simple ways to express complex feelings, elevate spaces, and bring harmony and beauty. In this matter, our processes are designed for you to enjoy the elegance of our flowers for several days or even weeks. However, we want you to prolong this experience of being naturally seduced with the following tips:

1. Water as soon as possible. It’s no secret that flowers need to get in water as soon as possible after you purchase them. If you don’t have time to arrange your floral bouquet, put your flowers in water and then you come back later on to trim them, arrange them and do whatever you want when you can take the time for them.

2. Keep the stem clean. The tip here is to keep the part of the stem that goes into water clean of any foliage, leaves or any other materials, in doing so you prevent bacteria.

3. Keep your flowers out of the sun. Natural flowers love sunlight when they are growing in the field, but it is not the same when they are cut. Putting them near a window with direct sunlight or close to a A/C or heating vents might dehydrate them pretty soon.

4. Change the water. The best is to keep your flowers in clean water. You can change the water every 2 – 3 days. Don’t forget to trim your stems in an 45° angle, remove excess foliage or leaves that could go into the water. This is a good time to remove any wilted foliage or flowers that start appearing over time.

5. Use Flower food. You could use only clean water to keep your flowers. But the idea is to keep them fresh and beauty for longer, so we advise to use any flower food sachet available in a flower shop near you. In some cases, we will provide them with your floral arrangements, but if this not the case, we have a very easy recipe: 1 quart water + 2 tbsp lemon juice + 1 tbsp sugar + ½ tsp bleach. Sugar serves as food for your flowers and bleach prevents fungi and bacteria.
