Flower Care

Our fresh flowers ship direct from our growers directly to you! That means the flowers you receive are fresher than those from traditional florists. Your flowers may arrive in bud form, giving you the chance to see them brilliantly bloom before your very eyes. Once your flowers arrive it may take up to 4 days for your flowers to bloom to maturity.

Step One
Cut the fastener band that is securing your bouquet into the box -this can be done with any pair of household scissors.

Step Two
Fill a vase 3/4 full with fresh warm water. Add the provided KaBloom Flower Food.

Step Three
Remove the protective floral tissue.

Step Four
If your bouquet shipped with a hydration bundle covering the bottom of your bouquet, remove the rubber band and discard the hydration foam.

Step Five
If necessary, remove the outside protective pedals (no more than 1 or 2). These pedals were intentionally left on to protect your flowers during shipment.

Step Six
Remove all of the foliage and leaves that falls below the water line. Cut the bottom of the stems at least one inch under warm running water with a shears, scissors, or sharp knife. Place the flowers in the vase, fluff out your bouquet and enjoy!

Additional Care Tips
When your flowers arrive, they will be thirsty and need to drink water. Please bear in mind that it may take 8-12 hours for your flowers to perk up once submerged in water.

After a few days, replace the water in your vase. Refresh the water with the second packet of the KaBloom Flower Food, and re-cut the stems.

What is wrong with the water in a vase when it turns yellow and cloudy?
This is a natural sign that bacteria is growing in the water. Bacteria can clog stems and shorten the vase life of flowers, so keep the water clear at all times to ensure the longevity of your blooms. If your water starts to turn cloudy, immediately empty the vase and add fresh water, preferably mixed with the KaBloom flower food provided.

No matter what type of arrangement you have, it is important to keep your flowers off of televisions, appliances and heating/cooling units. You should also keep them away from hot or cold drafts and out of direct sunlight.

Since flowers like sunshine, should I put my arrangement in the sun when I get it?
No. Growing flowers require sunshine for maturation, but cut flowers will fade much faster if exposed to heat and direct sunlight. To keep flowers fresh longer, place them in a location away from sun and drafts.

Is it possible to revive a wilted rose?
Sometimes. If a rose wilts prematurely, remove it from the arrangement and try the following easy tip to perk it up. Fill a sink with warm water. Lay the rose horizontally in the water bath and cut the stem (about 1") with a sharp knife under the warm water. Leave the rose in the bath for about two hours and let the water cool. This process can work wonders, but if the rose is already past its vase life it will not revive.
