Prepare your flower containers by cleaning them with mild soap and a drop of bleach or by using disinfecting wipes. This will clean any residues and kill bacteria that might shorten the life of the roses. Glass and plastic are the best materials to contain roses. We do not recommend placing the roses directly into containers that are metal, rusted, or made of clay or stone. These materials are porous and may contain harmful elements to your flowers. Fill containers with warm, room temperature water. Cold water is not readily absorbed and hot water can shock the flower.
Working with your Flowers
Remove all foliage and thorns that will fall below the water line. Allowing them to decompose in water will allow harmful bacteria to shorten the life of the flowers. Remove the “guard petal” on each rose – this is the outermost petal left on to protect the bud during shipment. You may also remove any petals that may have slightly bruised during shipping. We recommend cutting rose stems underwater at an angle for best results. Flowers last longer when kept in deep water. Roses will take up to 12 hours to hydrate.
Watch the Water
Always add fresh water daily. Change water at least every couple of days. Cloudy or discolored water can indicate decomposition and bacterial growth.
Storage & More
The temperature in which you store your flowers is very important. Warmer temps will cause the flower to open quicker. Flowers last best in temperatures around 45 degrees. Keep flowers out of direct light in a place with good air circulation. Cigarette smoking is harmful to flowers. Once the roses begin to bloom, place them in an area with less light so they will last longer. Do not store in the refrigerator. Placing the roses next to a window or in a cool room at night is a good idea.
