How to keep flowers for a long time

Generally speaking, flowers are stored in containers put into something like beer, freshness and so on, but beyond that there are some care points that you flower lovers need to pay attention to. For example, the proper low temperature can make the flowers keep longer (generally speaking, the low temperature here means above 5 ℃, not the lower the better, and certainly not the higher the better). There is another point of knowledge that most people overlook – flowers are not suitable for direct spraying! Many people in order to make the flowers more fresh, they can think of ways often is to spray water on the flowers, in fact, this is wrong. The right thing to do is to insert the flowers into a vase and just keep the fresh water in the vase; if the flowers are inserted on the clay, just pour the water directly on the clay. In addition, flowers should not be blown against the air conditioner, or placed near the heater, or other windy locations where the natural breeze is stronger.       

When you receive a bouquet of flowers, you want to keep the flowers beautiful for a longer time, then you need to pay attention to the following flower daily care points.If you want to send flowers to China, welcome to sammygift.

Method 1: Beer

Adding a little bit of beer to the vase with the flowers in it can make the flowers stay fresh for a lot longer. The ethanol in the beer can disinfect the cuttings of the flowers, and the sugar and other nutrients in the beer can provide nutrients for the flowers’ leaves and branches.

Method 2: Carbonated soft drink + water

Mix carbonated soda and water in a ratio of 1:4, pour it into a vase, and finally insert the beautiful flowers and it will be perfect! Generally speaking, flowers raised with water will gradually wither within a week and the water will become cloudy, but with the carbonated soda and water method, the flowers will still be beautiful after a week. The principle of carbonated beverage soaking flowers: carbonic acid contained in carbonated beverage can kill bacteria, and high syrup can be used as nutrients for flowers.

Method 3: Flower Preservative

Flower preservatives are chemicals that are added in the right amount to the flower arrangement solution. The preservative can inhibit the growth of bacteria and keep the flowers hydrated or promote the absorption of water. It also has the ability to maintain the balance of nutrients, control respiration, and inhibit ethylene production. You can buy freshness preservatives from specialized stores, or you can make your own at home.

The method of homemade flower preservative.

1, take a small amount of detergent dissolved in warm water, prepare a solution of 2%-4% concentration, the diagonally cut flower branches immersed in water depth of about 5cm, can extend the life of flowers more than 2-3 times.

Method 4: Brine + Sugar

We can all understand that after a flower is picked its existing sugar will be difficult to maintain the need for flowering. Therefore, adding a small amount of sugar to the fresh water used to raise the flowers will not only encourage the buds to open, but will also extend the freshness of the flowers.

In addition to sugar, salt in water is also good for flowers. Salt water can stop the growth of bacteria in the water, and in a saline environment, flowers generally maintain their ability to absorb water due to the concentration of cellular fluid different from the flowers themselves, thus keeping the flowers fresh. However, the concentration of salt water should not be too high, otherwise it will cause cell dehydration and death, generally speaking the concentration should not exceed 5%. You can also use white vinegar instead of salt.

In fact, the freshness of flowers is affected by many factors, when you look carefully at the above methods, you will find that the freshness of flowers generally starts from two aspects, one is sterilization and antiseptic one is to provide nutrients. Different flowers will have different growth habits, and their needs for temperature, sunlight, moisture, etc. will be different. I hope some of the above methods can be helpful to you. Thank you!
