WHEN BUYING FLOWERS
A. Pay attention to the bottom of the shaft. Choose flowers / floral, clean the bottom of the trunk. If the part is already soggy or smelly, it’s saved at least 24 hours of outdoor air.
2. For flowers and flower arrangements that are stored in the refrigerator space, the tip of the stem is usually clean. But we can still their age by examining the strength of the trunk. Choose a rod that is still hard.

2. Use shears or a sharp knife to cut the stems. Do not use paper or fabric scissors, because it can be clamped and cut stems.
PREPARING THE FLOWER CONTAINERS

The process of cooking food by having leaves residue in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2). When the carbon dioxide locked in the water and absorbed by plants again, of course, will damage the plants (ornamental flowers) earlier.
TO HOLD LONG

2. Avoid cut flowers from exposure to direct sun and strong winds blowing.
3. Flowers are placed in the conditioned space age flowers usually have a relatively shorter. This is due to bad air circulation and low humidity. In addition to diligently replace the water, give the flowers a chance “to breathe” by putting them in open space (which is not affected by exposure to the sun) or room air circulates well.
CHOOSE TYPE OF FLOWERS
A. Consider the basic needs of climate flowers. Hydrangea flowers that grow in cold regions, for example, if brought to the high-temperature region, the crown tends to change color and rolled away.
