The 
Basics
​Flower Care 101
  • Cut the tips of flowers on a diagonal (for better hydration). 

  • Pick out your favorite vase & fill with room temperature water. 

  • Remove any foliage that falls below the water line in your vase (will cause bacteria growth & shorten life).   

  • Change water daily & give the stems a fresh snip every few days. 

  • keep flowers away from direct sunlight & fruit (gives off a gas that causes the flower to age). 

  • Enjoy & share!

Examples: Quince, Forsythia, Cherry blooms - basically anything with a woody stem.

Pro
Tips
The boil water method to revive floppy flowers 
  • Boil water & pour into a small vessel

  • Cut the tips of the stems on a diagonal & dip 1/4 inch of each stem into boiling water for 30-60 seconds (protect flowers from steam). *Most times you will see bubbles coming out of the stem - that means it's working.

  • Put into cool water immediately & let the flowers sit for 3 hours minimum or place overnight in a refrigerator for the best results (cool dark room can work too).  

  • The flowers will perk right up!  

Plant
Care
​How to bottom WateR your plants

  • Sunlight - Let them soak up full sun (where your plant will receive the most direct light) for about 6 hours daily . 

  • Water - These gems are desert babies which means they are accustomed to very little water and even soil. We suggest *bottom watering (explained above) when soil is completely dry. 

  • Soil - well drained works best for succulents. It helps to mimic their natural environment (sandy, gravelly soil). 

Did you know? During the winter months some varieties magically change into vibrant colors!
