1. HAVING FLOWERS AT HOME
After you purchase your chosen flowers from a market and bring them in your home you will be left with one single obligation towards them and that is to make sure that they will not rot. This doesn‘t require any effort or special skills. All you need to be aware of is that every flower requires a certain amount of balanced care every day. This article will list for you all the things you need to take into consideration in order to properly take care of your indoor flowers.
2. TRANSPORTING THE FLOWERS HOME
After you have purchased the flowers you need to get them to your home as quick as you can. Remember-flowers are meant to stand still in peace and harmony and not in a moving vehicle, so the sooner you get home the healthier your flowers will remain. This might come as a certain shock for flower lovers but in a hot weather it takes half an hour for most fresh flowers to be harmed without a chance for healing provided they are left with no water throughout this half an hour. Remember-flowers like a normally lit, cool environment so if you have an air conditioner in the car or any other way of making the air in the vehicle cooler it would be wise to put it into action as quickly as possible. It might seem as a precaution that is unnecessary and too pretentuous but you won‘t think that way when you see that your flower you just bought is half dead when it finally reaches your home.
3. PREPARE A CONTAINER
Before you even make the purchase of the flower make sure you have bought a proper vase. This vase should be filled with water and it should already be waiting for you when you return home with your newly bought flowers. Remember that every minute without water means that your flower is dying so don‘t lose any time. Also do not forget that the water in the vase has to be cold. Always make sure that the water is clean otherwise it won‘t be long before the pollution in the container begins to inflict damage to the flower that is initially invisible to the naked eye.
4. ARRANGED PURCHASE OF A FLOWER
If you have contacted the flower market in advance and your purchase has already been arranged, you need to prepare wrappings and other useful decorations as ties and fastening which will hold the different flowers together in one bouquette. Provided you are certain that you won‘t spill anything you could also bring in the vehicle a vase or a container full of water or a bottle which is clean so that your new flowers can have constant access to water supplies. Also, you will need to cut every leaf that is to remain underwater in the vase. Such flowers will die and eventually they will polute the water.
5. CUTTING ENDS OF THE FLOWERS
The one thing you have to right before you put the flowers in the container is to cut cleanly the stems.
6. POSITIONING THE FLOWERS
Place the container in a position with good conditions which means that it shoudldn‘t be anywhere near strong sun rays or to a heating device of any kind.
7. WATERING, CHECKING
And of course, water the flowers every day accoridng to their size and always take a proper look in each and every one of them to make sure they are not damaged.
