Flower Care

1. Open your boxes and inspect your carnations.

Remove carnations from box by cutting any straps and remove the plastic wraps. Do not remove the rubber bands holding the carnations together in a bunch.

It is recommended to leave the rubber bands for 4 to 8 hours while the carnations hydrate and at that point remove once properly hydrated.

2. Prepare for Hydration.

Fill containers with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water. Mix flower food in the water to protect against bacteria and give added nutrients to the flowers. (If you do not have flower food, it can be purchased at any local florist).

Remove any foliage from the carnations that falls below the waterline of your vase. In removing foliage, care should be taken not to harm the stem.

The reason for removing any foliage below the waterline is to prevent development of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.

Cut stems diagonally under running water using sharp scissors or a knife, approximately one inch from the stem’s lower edge.

An angled cut will favor for a larger surface area for water absorption and prevents the ends of your stems from sitting flat in the container blocking water absorption.

Quickly after cutting, place the stems in the prepared water.

3. Wait Patiently until fully Hydrated.

Let flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Most flowers will take up to 8 to 12 hours to effectively hydrate, we recommend to leave them overnight.

Keep flowers in a cool, dark location far away from direct sunlight, breezes or extreme heat.

If you see that some flowers are still drooping after 3-4 hours, it’s possible an air bubble has formed, re-cut adhering to the above directions.

Change water every 24 hours and re-cut stems every 24 to 48 hours to keep flowers fresh. Assure that your flowers have enough water. The flowers will drink an remarkably large amount of water upon arrival.

4. Remove Rubber Bands.

Upon clearing of the protective packaging, carefully pluck off any brown or discolored guard petals. We ship out our roses with shield petals in order to protect the rose during shipping. It is not uncommon to remove an average of 5-10 petals per rose.

Remember that exposing roses to heat will help the flower to bloom, and keeping your roses in a cooler environment will slow down the opening process.

5. Storing your Flowers.

Remember that leaving open carnations to warm environments (outside, a hot room, sunlight, etc.) will help the flowers bloom, and storing your carnations in a cooler environment will hinder down the opening process.

Most flowers should be retained in a cool, dark area unless you are trying to speed up the blooming process.

Make sure you avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat.

Also, keep carnations far away from fruits, vegetables and/or plants which produce ethylene gas. Ethylene in the surrounding area could cause your flowers to wilt.
