2Proper Techniques for Arranging Flowers

Prior to arranging flowers, ensure that the vase is clean to prevent impurities and residue from affecting the longevity of the flowers. Use sharp scissors to cut the flower stems with precision and remove any submerged parts. Regularly trim the stem ends to prevent leaf rot due to prolonged contact with water.

3Caring for Your Flowers

Water your flowers in the early morning or evening for optimal hydration. Expose them to morning dew by placing them outside at night to preserve their freshness. To make a homemade flower water mixture, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and half a teaspoon of detergent to every 1 liter of water. Alternatively, mix 60 grams of Listerine mouthwash with every 5 liters of water in the vase. Additionally, vitamin B1 tablets can help keep flowers fresh for a longer time.

4Preserving the Freshness of Your Flowers

Store your flowers in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Avoid placing them near fruits as it can cause faster water loss. When misting your flowers, use a spray bottle held about 30 cm away and spray upwards instead of directly onto the petals to prevent them from opening too wide or falling off.
