Your flowers came in a vase we carefully selected with some water. Flowers are living creatures and if you want to benefit from them as long as possible make sure to check the followi. 

  • Change the water regularly. 
    One of the things that causes cut flowers to wilt so quickly is bacteria in the water. The most basic thing you can do to preserve cut flowers is to change the water once a day. Use lukewarm water
    And make sure that there are no dead leaves in the water.
  • Treat the water. You can also treat the water to inhibit bacterial growth. Two tablespoons of sugar, apple cider vinegar, or even a penny at the bottom of the vase can keep your flowers looking fresh for longer. A small amount of bleach in your vase water works well to control bacteria growth mentioned before and keep water clear. 
  • Keep an eye on the temperature. 
    If it's too hot or too cold in the spot you've placed your cut flowers, they will wilt much more quickly. Move them to a good, temperature neutral spot. Some flowers, however, do better at warmer temperatures. If you have tropical flowers, like Bird of Paradise, consider a warmer spot.
