Cut flower food contains nutrients that visibly extend the life of cut flowers and improve their condition. Once collected, the flowers stay fresh longer and store water better, which allows them to be transported more easily from the place of purchase. Conditioner ingredients inhibit the formation of bacteria that contribute to water spoilage, and at the same time prevent plant rot caused by these bacteria.
How to properly care for cut flowers?
When we cut flowers from our own garden or receive a beautiful bouquet, we want it to remind us of the wonderful moments associated with flowers for as long as possible. However, in order to enjoy the beauty of a bouquet, we should follow a few simple rules. It is not enough just to cut flowers and put them in a vase of water.
It is also important to prepare the flowers before putting them in the water, the room in which they are located, as well as the quality of the water. When applied, these few tips will surely be a healthy habit in the care of cut flowers.
Preparing the bouquet
Professional florists usually prepare ready-made flower arrangements when we buy or receive them. Shoots properly trimmed and twigs devoid of leaves. When a bouquet has been freshly prepared, we usually do not need to perform any additional treatments before placing it in a vase. But sometimes, the florist prepares the bouquet much earlier, and it stands for a little longer at the exhibition.
We will recognize this by looking closely at the cut stems. They will be visibly stale, lacking in firmness, and sometimes even spoiled. Then it is a good idea to trim the stems at least 1 cm before placing them in the vase. It is best to use sharp tools for each cut so as not to crush the stem as it draws in water. A secateurs will be perfect.
We cut at an angle. Firstly, because the absorption area will be larger, and secondly, because the flowers cut flat may stick to the bottom of the vase and the shoots will then have a limited ability to take up water.
Some people recommend that the cut be done underwater, in which case the plant automatically sucks water into the stem rather than air that obstructs the conductive beams. You can use a trick and your flowers will surely pay you back.
The location of the bouquet
An important aspect for cut flowers is also where they will stand. You probably noticed that the flower shop has a rather cool and humid microclimate. These conditions aim to extend the life of the flowers. Therefore, at home, flowers are best placed in a cool room. And if we do not have such a possibility, let us place bouquets at least away from direct sun or heat sources.
Cut flowers also do not like drafts. If the air humidity in the apartment is very low, as is the case with some indoor plants, it is good to sprinkle the bouquet.
Vase and water
The flower vase should be clean. Each time the plants are kept in a vase, thoroughly wash the vase so that no plant residues, algae and bacteria remain on it. Pour the remaining water from the watering can into the vase, because not every flower tolerates chlorinated water straight from the tap.
Too deep immersion, which reaches all the way to the leaves, creates the possibility of rotting and the growth of bacteria. Appropriate nutrients for cut flowers will extend the time the flowers remain in the vase. Cut flower conditioner contains nutrients that the plant absorbs from the ground under growing conditions.
The conditioner will also prevent the growth of microorganisms. Even with the use of flower food, you must change the water. You can find the method for using flower food in the instructions for use. Fresh water with the addition of flower food is a new portion of the necessary minerals.
Remember that flowers, especially on warm days, can “drink” all the water from the vase. To avoid them withering, we pour fresh water every day and wash the vase.
Cut flowers before placing them in water to cut about 2 cm at the base at an angle. Straight cut flower shoots have difficult water uptake. Use the conditioner once a week after diluting with water. One sachet (5 g) of the conditioner is enough for 1/2 liter of water. Place the cut flowers in the solution thus obtained.
