To ensure that your cut flowers stay beautiful and healthy looking during
their life cycle in the vase indoors, please follow these guidelines.|
Immerse the entire bloom (the bracts) and stem under water for 20 minutes.
The temperature of the water should be 70-85°F.
Re-cut the end of the stem.
After the immersing, re-cut the end of the stem 1" with a sharp knife.
Place the stem immediately in a plastic or glass container, filled with high quality water of the same temperature.
The water should include a flower preservative; you can find this at your local flower/garden store.
Make sure that at least 1' (2½ cm) of the stem (and foliage) is below the waterline in the container.
Mist the heliconias and gingers with water once or twice a day.
Re-cut the stems and renew the solution every 5-7 days.
If necessary, water once every 3 days.
Place the flowers in a sunny place but not in direct sunlight.
If the flowers have suffered from the transport (transit stress), please do the following:
* Cut 1" of the end of the stem and immerse stem and bloom (bracts)
under water (70-85°F.) for 90 minutes.
* Place after this in the container as a described above.
If, for some reason, you cannot unpack the shipping box immediately when delivered; open it up, mist the flowers with water and store the box in a cool place for the time being.
|Enjoy your heliconias and gingers!!|
