Essential Tips for Flower Care
Flowers beautify any space, but proper care is essential for their longevity. Here are some tips for flower care:
1. Clean Your Vase
Before placing your flowers in a vase, ensure it is thoroughly cleaned to prevent any lingering bacteria from making your flowers wilt faster.
2. Water Temperature and Quality
Use fresh, lukewarm water for your flowers as they can absorb it more quickly. Avoid using hot or cold water. Cut flowers need clean, pure water.
3. Trim the Stems
Cut about 2-3cm from the bottom of the stems at a 45-degree angle. This helps the flowers absorb water more efficiently.
4. Use Flower Food
Flower food contains sugar to feed the flowers and bleach which slows the growth of algae and bacteria.
5. Change the Water Regularly
Replace the water with fresh, cool water every 2-3 days to keep it clean and drinkable for the flowers.
6. Avoid Direct Sunlight and Heat
Keep your flowers out of direct sunlight and away from heat sources to prolong their life.
7. Remove Wilted Flowers
Wilted flowers can spread mould onto the others, so it's best to remove them as soon as possible.
8. Avoid Certain Home Remedies
Do not put copper coins, aspirin, lemonade, or bleach in the water. These popular tricks don't work.
9. Don't Mix Certain Flowers
Daffodils and narcissi emit latex from their stems when cut, which shortens the life of other flowers.
10. Clean the Vase After Use
Once your flowers have reached the end of their life, it's important to wash out the vase completely to get rid of any bacteria.
Proper flower care can significantly extend the lifespan of your flowers, allowing you to enjoy their beauty for a longer period.
