The purchase of fresh flowers, pre-treated by the floriculturist, guarantees a longer duration.
Use a clean pot with tap water (at room temperature).
Adding the cut flower preservative (Chrysal, Floralife) to the water extends the shelf life.
Choose the special preservative for used flowers.
Shorten the stems 3-5 cm with an oblique cut using a knife or sharp scissors.
Avoid exposure of flowers to drafts, full sun and radiators.
Regularly add tap water to the jar.
Keep the flowers away from the fruit basket. The fruit emits ethylene gas, which accelerates the aging process of the flowers.
If the tulips have weak stems, they must be wrapped in paper or cellophane and placed in a 10 cm layer of water for an hour. After this treatment they will be turgid and straight.
Check the stage of maturity of the flowers; unripe flowers tend not to fully bloom.
In floral works: wet the sponge well and also add the preservative (Chrysal, Floralife) to the water.
