Flower Care for the best result
At Naho’s Floral Design, flower care is an essential part of our procedure. Do you know what the worst enemy of flowers is? Bacteria. To prevent its growth, use clean vases and containers. Professionals process each stem appropriately depending on what it needs. To make it simple, we are going to discuss general flower care here. We also use the exact amount of flower food to prevent bacteria growth and provide necessary nutrient for long lasting products. With proper care, cut flowers and foliage can last a long time.
Fresh cut flowers are perishable and can be encouraged to last longer under the right conditions. Here are the tips we would like to share with you:
- Replenish the water frequently. Change the water entirely every 2-3 days.
- Trim at least a half inch of stem off your flowers before you put them in a vase and each time you change the water.
- Use flower food that contains sugar, acid, and bleach. Sugar gives nutrients to the flowers, acid maintains the pH level of the water, and bleach reduces the amount of bacteria and fungi in the water.
- Keep your flowers away from heat and bright light.
- Avoid placing your flowers near ripening fruit or vegetables, especially bananas and apples.
- After you throw out your last arrangement, be sure to wash the vase/container thoroughly in hot soapy water or in your dishwasher.
- Use sharp scissors when cutting. If you use dull scissors to trim your flowers, you are often smashing, and thus damaging, the tissue/cells at the end of the stem. Damaged cells cannot absorb water as efficiently as healthy cells.
