To ensure that the beauty and longevity of our flowers are preserved, proper care and handling are essential. In this blog, we will guide you through a step-by-step process to ensure that your Esperanza Flowers stay fresh and vibrant for as long as possible.

Step 1: Cut the Ties

Upon receiving your carefully packaged flowers, the first step is to remove any ties or bindings gently. Be cautious not to damage the delicate petals or stems while doing so. This will allow each flower to breathe freely and maintain its natural form.

Step 2: Cut an Inch off the Bottom of the Stems at a 45° Angle

The next crucial step is to trim the bottom of the flower stems. Use sharp pruning shears or a knife and cut approximately one inch from the end of each stem. Cutting at a 45° angle increases the surface area for water absorption and prevents the stems from sitting flat at the bottom of the vase, allowing better water circulation.

Tip while cutting: Do it Always Under Water in a Clean Sink or Bowl

To avoid air from entering the stems and obstructing water uptake, we recommend cutting the stems under water. Fill a clean sink or bowl with water and submerge the stems while trimming. This prevents air bubbles from forming in the stems and keeps your flowers hydrated.

Another Tip while Cutting: Do Not Cut Flowers with Regular Scissors

Regular scissors can crush the delicate vascular tissues in flower stems, restricting water flow to the petals. Invest in a pair of sharp floral shears or a floral knife to make clean cuts, ensuring your flowers have the best chance of staying fresh and vibrant.

Step 3: Place the Stems in a Vase with Fresh Water (2-3 Inches)

Once you have completed the underwater trimming, transfer your Esperanza Flowers to a clean vase filled with fresh water. We recommend filling the vase with 2-3 inches of water to provide ample hydration to the stems. Ensure that no foliage is submerged in the water, as this can lead to bacterial growth and shorten the vase life of your flowers.

Maintaining Freshness:

Change the water every two days to prevent bacterial growth and keep the water clean and fresh.
Trim the stems every few days, following the same 45° angle cut technique, to enable optimal water absorption.
Keep your flowers away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and drafts to avoid premature wilting.
