Tips for Proper Care of
Your Flowers or Candy

Ideal Arrangement Conditions
-Don't expose your arrangement to harsh conditions.

-Flowers prefer a display area free from draft and intense sun. Extreme heat or cold will be detrimental to your arrangement.

-Candy is just as easily effected by drastic climate changes and temperature. Candy, even when not chocolate, has a tendency to change texture and consistency when exposed to very cold or very hot conditions.

-An average temperature range for both floral and candy display conditions is anywhere from 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit (18 to 22 degrees Celsius).


Displaying Your Bouquet
-Avoid placing your arrangement, candy or floral, on top of appliances like televisions because these types of appliances give off heat causing flowers to wilt from dehydration and causing candy to melt.

-Avoid displaying your flowers or candy in an area that receives direct sunlight or strong drafts from ceiling fans or heating/cooling vents.

Keep Your Arrangement Fresh Longer
-When caring for a floral display, be sure to fill the container to the top, or soak the floral foam completely, to ensure each stem is receiving the nutrients necessary to survival.

-If the water in your vase arrangement appears cloudy, replace it entirely. If possible, recut stems by removing 1"-2" with a sharp knife.
**Do not use a dull knife or a pair of scissors! This has a tendency to crush or pinch the end of the stem and prevent it from drawing water and nutrients.

-Remove any leaves that will fall below the water line, as leaves in water promote bacterial growth that will compromise the life of your flowers.
