How to Help your Flowers Last Longer.


Keep the vase filled (or oasis soaked) with water containing the flower food (Chrysal) we gave you. Flower foods make flowers last longer but it is important to follow the mixing directions on the flower food packet. Flower foods should not be diluted with more water than is specified on the packet.


If the flower food solution becomes cloudy, replace it entirely with properly mixed flower food solution. If possible, re-cut stems by removing one to two inches with a sharp knife or clippers that will not crush the stems. Place the stems Immediately back into the solution. Be careful not to cut yourself!


Keep flowers in a cool spot, away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or on top of televisions. Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes flowers to dehydrate. Most flowers will last longer under cooler conditions.

How to care for your pot plants.
