The roses' secret maintenance routine
In order for your roses to have the best durability, it is important that when you get the bouquet home, you give the stems a new cut and place them in a vase filled with water that is around 50°C (it is warm to the touch, but not boiling)
This helps open up the stem (gets rid of internal air bubbles) and allows them to absorb more water, which is essential for their longevity.
Another tip is to repeat the cut on the stems every other day. This will keep them from becoming clogged with bacteria and allow them to continue taking in water. Be sure to cut the stems at an angle so they have a larger surface area to absorb water.
It is also important to keep your roses in a cool place. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight or near heat sources, as this can cause the flowers to wilt and the leaves to fall off. A room with a temperature of around 18°C is ideal.
Finally, be sure to change the water in your vase after a couple of days. Bacteria can build up in the water, clog the stems and make it difficult for the roses to absorb water. So, give the vase a good rinse and fill it up with fresh, warm water.
By following these simple steps, you will be able to enjoy your beautiful bouquet for longer. So, relax and enjoy the beauty of your roses!
