Flowers are natural creations that not only look beautiful, but also offers sense of peace and love. They are one of the best and pleasant gifts that can be presented to a person. Though flowers can fill a place with fragrance and delight, they have a very short life span. A fresh cut flower bouquet can stay for longer, if it is taken proper care of.
Below are some effective tips that can extend the life of plucked flowers:
- Replace the water regularly: Alike plants, flowers do need water to stay fresh. Even the cut flowers can drink an adequate amount of water to preserve their freshness. Put them inside a vase and fill it with water. Its advised to keep the vase filled with water to ensure that the bouquet doesn’t dry out quickly. There are great chances of bacterial growth in water containing flowers. Therefore, its advised to replace the water regularly to prevent bacterial attack on plucked flowers that can compel them to dry out.
- Trim the flower stems: When the blossoms are plucked and grafted inside a bouquet, the stems ends that have suffered a cut dries up. This dried end can make it difficult for the rest of the stem to soak water that can result in dead stem cells. To allow flowers to drink water, its advised to slightly trim off the dried stem corners frequently.
- Keep them away from heat and light: People often have a misconception that alike plants, flowers also need heat and light to survive. Though it is true for living flowers, the plucked ones should be kept completely away from direct and extreme sunlight. Their exposure to outer environment can cause them to mature up and die quickly. To make them stay longer, keep the vase or bouquet at a cool and shady spot.
