How To Care for Your Stems

  • UNWRAP: If you received one of our bouquets, remove the
    wrapping and select your favorite clean vase
     

     

    1. SNIP: To ensure that the stems will absorb lots of water, cut at least
      ½’’ off the stems diagonally to allow more surface area for them to drink
      water and ensure that they don’t sit flush with the bottom of the vase 
    2.  

    3. THIRST: Fill the vase with cool, clean water and try to change the water
      daily - or as often as you remember. Different varieties of flowers live
      different lives so remove the flowers as they expire so they don’t spread
      bacteria to the other healthy blooms
    4.  

    5. SAVE: Keep flowers out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures,
      which can dry out the flowers and cause wilting
    6.  

    7. TRIM: If possible, trim up the base of your stems every day or two

    9. SHARE: Share your stems with your friends and tag #stemsandco
