If you don't want your flowers to wilt prematurely then simply do these two things:
Re-cut stem ends about 1 cm every other day,
Change the water every other day,
Warning: reading on may cause you to gain extra knowledge that could result in longer lasting flowers for the rest of your life...
Flowers are delicate and tranisient, but it's something about these traits makes all them all the more special. The lifespan of your cut flowers depends on water take up, so creating optimum conditions for efficient drinking is very key.
The water travels by callipary action - taken up by millions of tiny straws running up the stem. Over time the water pressure below the waterline causes the open ends of these straws to collapse, much like a paper straw half way through using it. This is why we need you to re-cut the stem ends regularly - leaving them with open ended 'straws' to drink what is hopefully fresh water!
Bacteria will breed in any body of water left sitting for long periods, and will also speed up the collapse of the 'straws' - so, when you're refeshing the stem ends, change that water too.
We guarantee that if you follow these two instructions correctly you will have much impoved longevity and blooming experiences with your flowers.
