Take care of your tulips: How to increase the lifespan of your favorite flowers
Flowers that remain beautiful and fresh for a long time are an important element for any florist. If you want to increase the life of your tulips, you can use some tips and tricks.
First of all, make sure you choose a clean vase and fill it with cold water. It is important that the vase is completely clean, so feel free to use chlorine to ensure that there are no bacteria left. Then fill with water to approx. 5-10 centimeters height in the vase. Do not fill with too much water, as this can cause the tulips to grow too quickly and become too tall. Instead, start by filling a little water and top up when needed.
Tulips are often sold dry, and to make them more susceptible to water again, the stems must be recut. You should leave the tulips in plastic or paper for approx. 30 minutes until they are firm and firm. Place them in a cool place while they absorb water.
Avoid topping up water and rather empty out the old, rinse the vase and refill with clean water. Remember that tulips are thirsty flowers that drink a lot of water, so make sure that the vase does not become completely empty.
Another way to extend the life of your tulips is to place them in a cool place at night, just like with most other cut flowers. This can increase durability considerably.
Remember that you can also cut the tulips shorter to extend their life. With these simple tips, you will be able to enjoy beautiful and fresh tulips for much longer.
