  Flower Care Tips

What is the best way to take care of a flower arrangement?

It depends on how they are packaged:

  • If you receive flowers in a container with floral foam, be certain the container is full of water every day. Using your finger, feel under the greens for a place where water can be added. Or you can pour water slowly into the center of the arrangement, keeping a finger in the container to gauge the water level.
  • If you receive flowers in a vase, check to be sure the water is always clear. If the water turns cloudy, empty it and add fresh water. If possible, re-cut the stems with a sharp knife before placing them in the fresh water.
  • If you receive flowers in a box / tissue / wrapper, remove all of the foliage that falls below the water line, then cut the stems with a sharp knife in a sink full of warm water. Be sure to cut the stems under the water and place them immediately into a vase of warm water.

No matter what type of arrangement you have, it is important to keep your flowers off of televisions, appliances and heating/cooling units. You should also keep them away from hot or cold drafts and out of direct sunlight.

 

What is wrong with the water in a vase when it turns yellow and cloudy?

This is a natural sign that bacteria are growing in the water. Bacteria can clog stems and shorten the vase life of flowers, so keep the water clear at all times to ensure the longevity of your blooms. If your water starts to turn cloudy, immediately empty the vase and add fresh water. Re-cut the stems with a sharp knife under warm water before placing them in the vase of fresh water.

 

Since flowers like sunshine, should I put my arrangement in the sun when I get it?

No. Growing flowers require sunshine for maturation, but cut flowers will fade much faster if exposed to heat and direct sunlight. To keep flowers fresh longer, place them in a location away from sun and drafts.

 

 Potted Plant

  • Keep plants in medium-light locations - out of direct sunlight
  • Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage plants will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light.
  • Plant soil should be kept moist at all times
  • Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. Be careful to avoid overwatering - do not allow plants to stand in water.
  • Avoid wetting plant leaves.
  • Avoid excessive heat or cold
  • Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes plants to dehydrate.)
