How to Make Flowers Last Longer


  1. Pick out your vase, rinse it out, then fill with clean water.
  2. Remove your flowers from its carrier and clean each stem (remove all leaves that will be below the waterline).
  3. Cut each stem at a diagonal at the desired length (I recommend removing at least an inch).
  4. Add 1/4 teaspoon of bleach to water (helps to fight bacteria).
  5. Sprinkle some sugar into the water – it acts as great nutrients for them.
  6. Change the water every other day.  Make sure to trim each stem at a diagonal when you change the water.
  7. Try to keep your flowers out of direct sunlight and in a cool place.
  8. Enjoy your flowers for an extra long time!
