Caring 4 Flowers

Fresh Flowers

Water Wisely

  • Change the water every 2-3 days. Use lukewarm water for most flowers and cold water for bulb flowers like tulips.
  • Trim the stems by 1-2 inches at a 45-degree angle before placing them in the vase to ensure better water absorption.

Location, Location, Location

  • Keep flowers away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, and electronics that generate heat.
  • Opt for a cool spot to prolong their life.

Feed Them

  • Use the flower food provided by your florist according to the instructions. Alternatively, a teaspoon of sugar and a few drops of bleach in the water can help nourish the flowers and keep the water clean.

Dried Flowers

Keep Them Dry

  • Ensure dried flowers are completely free from moisture when you place them in a vase or other display areas. Humidity is the enemy of dried flowers, causing them to wilt or mold.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

  • Although they are no longer living, dried flowers can still fade in color when exposed to direct sunlight. Place them in a spot where they can enjoy indirect light.

Dust Gently

  • Use a soft brush or a hairdryer on a low, cool setting to remove dust. This will keep them looking fresh without damaging the delicate petals.

No Water Needed

  • Unlike their fresh counterparts, dried flowers do not need water. In fact, water can damage them, so keep them dry at all times.

Handle with Care

  • Dried flowers are more fragile than fresh ones. Handle them gently to avoid breakage.

Avoid Humid Areas

  • Bathrooms and kitchens can be humid, which might affect the longevity of dried flowers. Opt for drier rooms if possible.
