  • The flowers should be cut when they are not yet fully developed, preferably in the morning.
  • Choose only healthy plants, because disease, apart from being the source of infection, gives off a lot of ethylene – a gas that accelerates aging.
  • Cut flowers are best with a length just a little bigger than the vase.
  • It is best to cut at an angle so that the stem can easily absorb water.
  • The longer the cut, the better the water will be taken up.
  • Because the largest pairing takes place through the leaves, it would be best to have only a few.
  • When arranging flowers in a vase, there should be no leaves under the water, because they quickly rot and harm the flowers.
  • After cutting, flowers must be placed in water as soon as possible.
  • Ideally, the water in the vase should be changed every day, this will prevent growth of the  bacteria that causes rot.
  • It is also worth pruning the tips of flower stalks frequently.
  • Wash the vase as often as possible to remove bacteria.
  • The water should be at room temperature, or even warmer, approx. 35C at the time of arranging flowers in the vase.
  • You can also buy and use conditioners for cut flowers that will extend their longevity, or alternatively, use the home method by adding some sugar to the water in the vase.
  • Do not put the vase of flowers in the sun,  high temperature causes plants to wilt much faster.
