Of course you would like to enjoy our beautiful roses as long as possible. Proper handling of the roses of Rosa Plaza creates a vase life of 12 till 14 days. We would like to give you advice, so you have as much fun as possible with our quality roses.
Use a clean vase, a sharp knife and flowerfood. Keep water free of leaves and place the vase of roses where there is no wind, drafts or direct sunlight. The avoidance of bacterial growth is essential to prevent hanging roses.
Below we explain these care tips further.
Use a clean vase, preferably made from glass. Clean carefully with a little bit of chloride and hot water to kill bacteria.
Cut off the roses at least 2 cm diagonally with a sharp knife. By using a sharp knife, damage on the stems is reduced.
Water free from leaves
Make sure that no leaves are hanging in the water of the vase, because this can stimulate growth of bacteria. Only remove the leaves and not thorns, to avoid bacteria growth stimulating wounds.
Use flower food in the vase and mix poperly with water according to the ratio indicated on the package. The flower food is usually attached to the bunch or ask your florist for this. Cut flower food will give the flowers extra energy and also ensures that the bacteria growth is reduced. This will keep the water cleaner.
Free of wind, draft and heat
Place the vase of roses on an wind and draft-free place. Place the vase of roses never in the sun or near a heater.
If you follow up these recommendations, you will have the best chance for a long vase life.
