Thank you for choosing Whispers + Honey for your floral arrangement. We want to ensure that your beautiful flowers remain fresh and vibrant for as long as possible. Here are some simple steps to help you take care of your blooms once they've been delivered to you.
1. Finding the Perfect Spot
Place your vase of flowers in a location that receives indirect sunlight. Avoid placing them near heaters, vents, or fans, as direct airflow can cause the flowers to dehydrate more quickly.
Check the water level in the vase daily and add fresh water as needed. Make sure the vase is always filled with water to keep the stems hydrated.
3. Re-Cutting Stems
Every few days, it's a good idea to trim about half an inch to an inch from the bottom of each stem. Cut the stems at a diagonal angle using sharp scissors or shears. This re-cutting helps the stems absorb water more effectively.
4. Changing Water
Every 2-3 days, change the water in the vase. Before adding fresh water, rinse the vase thoroughly to remove any bacteria that may have accumulated. This step will help extend the life of your flowers.
5. Enjoy the Beauty
Take time to enjoy the beauty of your flowers and the positive energy they bring to your space. Remove any wilted or faded flowers as needed to keep the arrangement looking its best.
6. Temperature Matters
Maintain a comfortable room temperature for your flowers. Extreme temperatures can affect the longevity of the blooms.
7. Avoid Fruits and Appliances
Keep your flower arrangement away from ripening fruits and appliances that generate heat. Ethylene gas produced by fruits can cause the flowers to deteriorate faster.
8. Appreciate Each Moment
Different flowers have different lifespans. Some may last longer than others, but with proper care, you can enjoy your arrangement for an extended period.
Light: Place your succulent in bright, indirect light. A south-facing window with filtered sunlight is often ideal.
Watering: Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings. Water sparingly, and be cautious not to let the plant sit in waterlogged soil.
Soil: Use a well-draining succulent soil mix to prevent root rot.
Temperature: Succulents prefer warmer temperatures, ideally between 60°F to 75°F (15°C to 24°C).
Light: Orchids thrive in bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.
Watering: Water orchids thoroughly when the potting mix feels dry to the touch. Allow excess water to drain out completely.
Humidity: Orchids prefer higher humidity levels. Place a tray of water near the orchid or use a humidifier if the air is dry.
Temperature: Most orchids enjoy temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C).
Light: Place peace lilies in bright, indirect light. They can tolerate low-light conditions, but too much direct sun can scorch their leaves.
Watering: Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Keep the soil consistently moist, but avoid overwatering.
Humidity: Peace lilies appreciate higher humidity levels. Mist the leaves occasionally or place the pot on a tray of water and pebbles.
Temperature: Maintain temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C).
Light: Different green plants have varying light preferences. Some prefer bright, indirect light, while others tolerate low-light conditions. Check the care tag or ask our team for guidance.
Watering: Water according to each plant's specific needs. Generally, allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
Humidity: Most green plants adapt well to average indoor humidity levels.
Temperature: Keep temperatures consistent within the range suitable for each specific plant type.
