+Your flowers will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL. Please refer to our Flower Care tab on this product page for a descriptive process on care and handling instructions.
++In the event that a substitution may be necessary to make certain that your flowers are delivered on time, we take the utmost care in assuring that your order is as similar to your original flower choice as possible even if this means substituting flowers of higher value. While we will always try to inform under these circumstances, flower substitutions may be shipped without verbal confirmation from you.
Sunset Blend Tritoma Flowers are shipped directly from our farms. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for shipment with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their journey it is absolutely NORMAL. Just follow these simple steps and the flowers will bloom delightfully.
Open your box of flowers and inspect.
Ensure that your flower buckets are clean and disinfected.
Fill the buckets with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water.
Remove flowers from box by cutting any straps.
Remove any flower bunch packaging material, including plastic sleeve and/or newspaper. Using scissors works best, as pulling off sleeves manually can damage your flowers.
Cut one stem under cool, running water with a sharp pair of scissors to desired length.
Immediately after cutting, place the stem in a prepared bucket.*
Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate well. Flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate.
Store your Tritoma in a cool, dark room. Keep them away from direct sunlight, drafts or excessive heat.
Change water every 24 hours to keep flowers fresh. Always assure that your flowers have sufficient water. The flowers will drink an exceptionally large amount of water upon arrival, so you may have to replenish their water more frequently at first.
Make sure to keep fallen blooms, leaves, and used water from these flowers away from children and pets. While touching the plant is perfectly safe, injesting Tritoma can be toxic. This flower is never for consumption!
* If upon first inspection, you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing your flowers. Leave the flowers intact in the box and call us immediately to 1.877 50 ROSES (507-6737).
*Ensure that you have sufficient room in each bucket for the amount of flowers you will be storing in the bucket. Flowers need room to breath and bloom; over stuffing buckets with too many flowers, can cause damage as well as prevent proper blooming.
*Cutting more than one stem at a time takes a longer time, meaning they are not placed immediately in water. This can cause air bubbles in the stem that prevent the flower from drinking the water they need to bloom, as well as cause the flowers to wilt and brown faster.
