Avoid sunlight and direct aircon blower.
Direct sunlight is way too much for them, sunlight will burn them in due to them. No doubt that fresh materials prefer to be in cold places. But placing them directly under that aircon blower will freeze and dehydrate them.
Changing of water and temperature
We recommend changing of water every 2-3 days and use cool to cold water instead of room temperature water. If you do not have cool water, put a few ice cubes in the water to lower the temperature of water before putting the flowers in.
Clean vase ware
Always clean your vase ware before use as the germs and bacteria in the vase may also cause your flowers to wither despite your effort.
No leaves in water
Remove any leaves there may be before inserting them into the water. As the leaves submerge in the water will turn the water milky.
Materials like : Gerbera, Daisy, Sunflower do not put too much water.
Slant cut the stems at an angle allow them to absorb more water. Always slant cut the stems when you are changing the water. This will allow them to stay fresh longer.
*Use a sharp scissor to cut to prevent injuring the stem
Remove any petals or leaves that are withered to prevent them from polluting other fresh materials.
Above are some basic tips and tricks for every flower lover references. But of course there are other home remedies that are not limited to what we have shared.
Lastly, we wish that everyone will find joy in caring for your fresh materials and allow them to stay longer with you.
