Mother’s Day has come and gone, and as one of the most popular days for purchasing roses, this means that all across the country there are fresh flowers sitting in homes and offices. These flowers have already begun to lose their luster, however, and in a week’s time, they’ll be all but gone. That’s why people have always tried to find ways to prolong the life of their roses.
One of the best ways is to keep your roses in a clean vase. Washing a vase after each use can clear away microorganisms that speed up the decaying process of flowers. Along with keeping the vase itself clean, the water is also very important. Changing the flowers’ solution once a day or adding preservatives like sugar or those available through a florist can also help. But don’t overdo it, because adding too much will hurt more than it helps. You can also trim your flowers with sharp scissors or pruners to keep mold and fungi from clogging the base of the stems.
What’s important is to keep the roses from drying out. That’s why if the room they’re kept in is dry, you should mist them at least once a day or even go as far as refrigerating them at night or while you’re gone during the day because the quickest way for a rose to dry out is to have them in direct sunlight or around drafts of air. When a flower does die you need to remove it as it will produce ethylene that will quickly kill the others. The same gas is produced by fruit as it ripens so you should keep your flowers away from that as well.
