Flower & Plant Care

● Keep it cool: the warmer the room, the faster the flowers will open and the shorter their lifespan will be. Keep flowers away from heat sources, direct sunlight and hot lights. 

●  Ensure the water level remains high

●Fully change the water every 2-3 days. Bacteria in the water is a flower’s worst enemy!
Remove the flowers by holding them like a bouquet - touching the stems where the neck of the vase was - and pour the old water out. 
Rinse the vase out and refill with fresh cold water. Use a little bit of the flower food provided - not the whole packet!
Re-cut the stems at a 45 degree angle about ½ - 1” from the bottom
Recutting the stems removes the bacteria that keeps the flowers from drinking and, thus, kills them quickly
Cutting at a 45 degree angle creates a larger surface area for the stems to drink from
Quickly place the flowers back in the water - you don’t want to leave the flowers out of water for long! 
 
● Leaving freshly cut flowers out of water for an extended period of time before placing in water allows air bubbles to get trapped in the stem which blocks the uptake of water.

● Any droopy stems or flower heads that go over need to be removed (either completely remove the stem or cut the head off if there are multiple florets on a stem) . Not only will this keep the arrangement looking pretty visually, but it also will keep the bacteria that infests dead flowers from infecting the remaining flowers. 

● Keep the water free from debris and leaves as these harbour bacteria.

● When fully cleaning a vase, a little bit of diluted bleach is the best thing to use as it doesn’t harm the flowers, but does kill the bacteria.






● Keep it cool: the warmer the room, the faster the flowers will open and the shorter their lifespan will be. Keep flowers away from heat sources, direct sunlight and hot lights. 

● Ensure the water level remains high; top up with water daily. 
If you’re being really good, place the whole arrangement in a sink and gently let the water from the tap flow into the container and flush out the older water. 
Remember to pat the vase dry!

● Treat your plants with lots of love as they are perishable and sensitive to variable conditions such as transportation, temperature, watering, soil quality, and lighting, among others. Because of this, we are unable to offer a refund or a guarantee, however we will make every effort to educate you on proper care for your plant and to help you troubleshoot any issues.

● Flowering plants need moderately bright light - fluorescent lights are usually insufficient

● Generally do best in 65-75 degrees in the day and 55-60 degrees at night. To extend bloom life, move them to a cooler spot at night.

● Check the soil before watering, but flowering plants generally need to be watered more often than foliage plants.

● Ensure there is good drainage

● Bulbs like filtered bright, sunny light. Water deeply but be careful to not overwater. Don't dry out.

● Ferns & Foliage like indirect filtered light. Don't overwater; don't dry out! Keep soil moist but not too wet (or the roots can rot) and don't go too long between waterings.

● Airplants like bright, indirect light. To water, soak for 20 minutes once a week and spritz an additional 2-5 times a week in between waterings. 

● Succulents and Cacti like filtered light, 6+ hours a day, be careful not to burn. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings, then water to soaking and drain. Do not spritz or overwater.
