Cutting the stems to maintain the Freshness of Flowers:
Always cut your fresh flower stems at a sharp angle. This increases the surface area of the fresh flower stem and allows water to be better absorbed through the stem. Flower stems cut at an angle will not rest flush against the bottom of the container; thus they better allow the water to penetrate your fresh flowers.
Make sure you cut the fresh flower stems under running water to avoid taking in air. After the end of the stem is cut, place your fresh flower bouquet directly in water. It only takes a minute for fresh flower stems to dry and seal up. Fresh flowers with thick stems and thin branches should be cut at an angle and then cut up the center for better water absorption through the stem.
Flowers and Temperature:
Temperature is key to maximizing the vase life of fresh cut flowers. Warmer temperatures cause fresh flowers to open while cooler temperatures cause fresh flowers to close. Fresh Flowers last best in temperature around 45 degreees. Misting fresh flowers about twice a day will help keep them cool, and will also help the flowers absorb moisture through their petals. Keep you fresh flower bouquet out of direct light, in a place with low to indirect light, as light creates heat that speeds up the life cycle of fresh flowers. Flowers are accustomed to the outdoors so air circulation is important for the vase life of fresh cut flowers. Keep you fresh flowers away from a direct draft and cigarette smoke.
