Our tropical centerpieces are shipped directly from our farms to your doorstep. Before shipping your flowers, we prepare them for their journey with proper hydration methods. If your flowers appear sleepy and thirsty after their long journey, this is absolutely normal. Follow these simple steps to ensure your flowers have the proper care.
- When your flowers arrive, it is important that you get them in water as quickly as possible. Open your boxes and remove any protective packaging, such as foam or paper.
- Inspect your centerpieces*
- Gather clean vases or containers for your centerpieces. Ensure your vases or containers are very clean. We recommend rinsing them with warm water to ensure your flowers stay as healthy as possible.
- Fill the vases with at least 4 inches of fresh, cool water. If flower food is available, follow the package directions for adding it to the water.
- Your flowers may or may not arrive with water tubes or sponges attached to the bouquet for hydration. If they do, gently remove them. Remove any plastic sleeves protecting the flowers. However, do not remove the rubber bands securing the centerpiece together.
- Holding the flowers tightly, using sharp flower shears or scissors, cut stems diagonally under cool, running water. Cut about an inch off of each stem.
- Place the full centerpiece in the prepared water immediately after cutting. It is not necessary to remove the rubber bands, as they help keep the centerpiece's shape.
- Store your centerpieces indoors. Optimal storage temperatures for tropical flowers are between 55°F to 75°F. This is very important for tropical flowers. Do not refrigerate your tropical flowers. Refrigeration will damage the blooms. Do not store your bouquets near direct sunlight, drafts, or excessive heat, either.
- Allow flowers at least 4 hours to hydrate, flowers may take up to 12 hours to properly hydrate. Periodically check the water levels. Tropical flowers drink a lot of water when they first arrive, so it will likely need to be refilled.
- Change the water for your flowers ever 24-48 hours to ensure they stay healthy and happy. Re-cut the stems when giving them fresh water.
