The LAF flower hat box is designed to be a vase.
The hand-tied flowers bouquet can stay in the flower box for four to six days. The moment you receive the bouquet, no water or floristry tools will be required. On the next day, pour fresh water directly in the flower box and dissolve one pack of floral preservative provided.
Extend the lifespan of your bouquet
Every other day, you can cut half an inch of the stems with a sharp knife or floral scissors. After 3-4 days, select a vase that fits the size and shape of the bouquet. Take the flowers out of their packaging, remove the wrapping papers and pour away the water.
Clean your vase carefully
Flowers wilt and rot because of bacteria in the water. To help reduce bacteria build-up and increase your flowers’ lifespan, ensure the vase is cleaned and thus bacteria-free before the flowers are first placed in it. To help keep your flowers fresh and vibrant, clean your vase every two days and refill, rather than top up the water.
Water & flower food
Fill your vase with tepid water, because cut flowers absorb warm water more quickly than cold. Add the floral preservative that you receive with your arrangement. This will help extend the life of the flowers by providing nutrients and inhibiting bacterial growth in the water
Recut the stems
Recut the stem before you put the flower in the vase so it can take up water efficiently. Make the cut at a 45-degree angle, which provides a greater cut surface for water absorption. Trim the stems of your flowers regularly. They have a tendency to reseal themselves and restrict water flow.
Avoid direct sunlight and fruits
For a long lifespan of your flowers, display in a cool, well ventilated place out of direct sunlight and keep them away from heat and drafts. Refrigerate your flowers in the evening, but not at too cold a temperature (don’t put them in the freezer). If there is no room in your fridge, move them to a cool location. Refrigeration will help maintain your cut flowers’ beauty. However, avoid placing your flowers with or near fresh fruits as it produces ethylene gas which will shorten the flower life.
