Care and Concern

 If you're a person who loves flowers and wants to hold on to them for as long as possible, this guide is exactly what you need.

FloraDeli, brings together a step-by-step guide to help you in maintaining the health of the little bright and colourful flowers that adorn your home.

  • You must put the stems or the bouquet in water, to ensure longevity. However, each time the stems are exposed to air, the pores get blocked. Hence, it is best you cut a little bit of the stem, even if it looks fresh. You must hold the stem in the water, if possible and cut with a sharp scissor, diagonally. If you're looking at a bouquet, then it might be impossible to hold the stems in water, and thus your only solution is to cut them one by one and place them in a vase as quickly as possible. However, there is no alternative for a sharp pair of scissors because a blunt one crushes the ends, doing more harm than good.
  • The best preservative for flowers, is sugar. Yes, the same ingredient that appeals to you in chocolates and cakes, takes care of your flowers too! However, put in just about half a teaspoon sugar for a dozen flowers, because you have to change the water the next day.

  • That brings us to our next point: Change the water in the vase. Flowers should not be allowed to stand in the same water for more than 36 hours. It is most advisable to change the water at the end of 24 hours.
  • Once, in the vase, the flowers should be placed in a cool place, away from direct sunlight. Most importantly, it shouldn't be directly under the fan, because the wilting process gets facilitated by the fan!

  • You must trim the bouquet regularly, and cut or pluck out the flowers or leaves that wilt, lest it might contaminate its 'friends'

  • Some flowers need special care. For example, when lilies blossom the colour of the anther is a stark contrast to the petals. It sure does look good, but it is best to pluck the anthers, lest they stain the petals and cause harm. Carnations should be placed in lukewarm water, so that the blossomed beauty lasts longer!
