Flowers love clean water. They want to drink cloudy, brown water about as much as you do. Change their water often and they’ll last a little longer for you.
They love fresh cuts. You know how great you look and feel when you leave a salon with a brand new do? Flowers can absorb that clean water better if you snip of the end of their stalk every few days. They’ll be much more perky and firm.
They can get sunburn! Ok that’s not exactly true but leaving them in the sun or any other overly warm place will cause cut flowers to wilt, droop, and generally not feel as groovy. Like Charleston's tourists in the summertime.
