Taking Care of Your Chrysanthemums

Upon arrival, keep flowers in water while you prepare a fresh vase of room temperature water. You can also extend the life of chrysanthemums by adding a single packet of flower food to their water. Be sure to cut their stems on a slant so they can more easily absorb the water and nutrients. It's okay to continue cutting their stems shorter each time you change the water in their vase. In fact, the shorter the stem, the more water and nutrients can feed the bloom. Remove any foliage and leaves that might fall under the waterline to lessen the growth of bacteria. Change the vase water regularly, every 2 - 3 days, especially if it begins to look dirty or cloudy. In this case, you will want to clean the vase and rid it of any slime or bacteria before refilling with water and returning your chrysanthemums.

Pro Tip:

If your chrysanthemums start to look a little wilted, perk them up by adding three teaspoons of sugar to lukewarm water. Trim their stems 1 inch from the bottom and let them soak up the sugar water for a few minutes. Then, return them to a clean vase and watch them restore their natural beauty.
