Keep the Roses away from direct sunlight
Roses are extremely delicate and should never be placed under direct sunlight as this will for sure make the flowers wilt very quickly. Keep the Roses in a cool environment, preferably in a room and at a place which doesn’t get the direct rays of the Sun- maybe near your bed, or on the dining table, or a cool corner of your living room. This will help the Roses stay fresh for a longer period of time.
Don’t keep the Roses right under the fan or right in front of the heater/ AC
Direct wind from the fan & AC, and the direct heat from the room heater or any other heat radiating object, is harmful for the fresh Roses. In fact, you shouldn’t even keep ripening fruits around fresh Roses as the ethylene gas that is emitted by the fruits will have a negative impact on the flowers.
Water the Roses liberally
Neither is too much water good for fresh flowers, nor is too little of it good- there needs to be a balance. Thus, water your flowers liberally and never touch the delicate petals with your hands as the normal body temperature is also higher than what these flowers can bear, thus always hold them by their stems. When you order a rose bouquet online and you receive the flowers, if you see that the stem is already a little woody, place them in a vase filled with 2/3rd water immediately and keep changing this water every two to three days. Use normal temperature tap water for your flowers.
Trim the stems daily
It’s very important to trim the stems of your fresh flowers every time you change the water, which should be every two to three days, as this will help them stay fresh for a longer period of time. Use a sharp knife or scissor to cut the stems of the Roses at a 45 degree angle- this will increase the surface area to absorb more water.
Keep your Roses fresh for a long period of time and enjoy them for as long as possible!
