Botrytis: Keep petals DRY
Temperature: Avoid fluctuations
Ethylene Gas: Silent, but deadly!
Mix flower food with COLD water
Be Prepared: Make quick transfers
Hydration: Allow time (2 – 4 hrs min)
Dosing: Measure to get your money’s worth
No Ice: Serve your flower solutions straight up!
Peel guard petals only if blemished or diseased!
Stripping: Best performed in privacy of your home
Sugar: I love you (tuberoses, protea, lisianthus, peonies)
If you wouldn’t drink it, or out of it: Neither will your flowers
