Tips to preserve roses received by your partner

Trimming Stems Upon receiving the roses, trim their stems at an angle under running water. This allows better water absorption and prevents air bubbles from forming in the stems.

Remove Leaves Remove any leaves from the stems that would be submerged in water. This prevents bacterial growth and keeps the water cleaner for longer.

Water Change Change the water in the vase every 2-3 days. This prevents the growth of bacteria and keeps the roses fresh.

Keep Away from Heat Place the vase of roses away from direct sunlight and sources of heat such as radiators or electronics. Heat accelerates the wilting process.

Use Flower Food If available, use flower food provided with the roses or make your own by mixing a few drops of bleach and sugar in the water. This helps in keeping the water clean and providing nutrients to the flowers.

Mist the Petals Lightly mist the petals of the roses with water every day. This helps in maintaining their freshness and prevents them from drying out.

Avoid Drafts Keep the roses away from drafts or air conditioning vents as they can cause the petals to dry out faster.

Drying Method  If you want to preserve the roses for a longer period, consider drying them. Hang them upside down in a dry, dark, and well-ventilated area
