  • Fresh cut orchids and roses last the longest
  • In warm desert temperatures bacteria tends to grow in the water and it should be changed every few days. Arrangements should be fed when water is changed
  • Use warm water in the container because it helps flowers drink
  • Cut stems with a sharp knife for a clean cut. Scissors pinch the stem and flowers can’t drink the water
