How It Works:
When a flower stem is cut from its mother plant, all access to water and food is cut off as well. Cut flowers last longest in environments that most closely approximate their living conditions before they were cut. This includes providing nourishment and minimizing the growth of bacteria.
While the most important ingredient for fresh flowers is fresh, clean water, providing a food source in addition to an adequate amount of light and water can help the flower survive much longer.
Flower preservatives are a source of food for the cut flower. When added to the water, flowers are able to remain healthy and beautiful for a period of time. With proper care and an ideal environment, flowers given Algoplus Cut Flower Food can often survive for one to two weeks after being cut, depending on the variety.
Add one tablespoon (1/2 oz) Algoplus Cut Flower Food for each quart of water. Recut flower stem 1" from bottom and remove leaves below water line. Add additional Algoplus Cut Flower Food solution as necessary.

Tips for longer lasting cut flowers
• If possible, cut flowers in the morning or evening when they have more preserves stored.
• Choose a vase that doesn't crowd stems to prevent early rotting
• Cut away leaves and branches that would that will be below the water line. These can decay water quickly with algae which will keep the flower from absorbing nutrients.
• Always recut stems before placing in vase water with the sharpest pruners or shears available at a slight angle.
• To prevent air bubbles in the stem and shortening the life of your flowers, recut stems while submerged in lukewarm water.
• Display flowers in cool areas, away from sunlight or heat sources.
