Cut Flower Care

FRESH FLOWER ARRANGEMENT CARE

Your arrangement will arrive with water which contains the necessary flower food and additives to ensure a long vase life. Please check immediately that the water is to within 1/2 inch of the top of the vase, and keep it to this level by checking and refilling daily if necessary. Regular tap water is sufficient. If possible, you can tip your arrangement to one side after about 3 or 4 days and empty out as much water as you are able, then refill with fresh tap water. We do not recommend this if your vase has sand and/or shells at the bottom. Please note that tropical flowers do not like any type of flower food and will arrive with plain water.

Please keep your arrangement out of direct sunlight and drafts, and remove any dead or dying blooms regularly.

PHALAENOPSIS ORCHID CARE

Your new Orchid plant will require watering every 7 to 10 days. We recommend placing one or two ice cubes on top of the soil (not the leaves) and allow them to melt naturally. Over-watering is the number one cause of death in Phalaenopsis Orchids, so if your leaves start turning yellow and crinkly, do not water so much. If you have a water softener in your home, please use an alternative source to water your Orchid.

Do not place your plant in direct sunlight. They prefer an east or west window with indirect light, and take care to keep away from drafts. Any sudden change of temperature for your Orchid may result in new buds failing to open or dropping off.

SUCCULENT PLANTER CARE

Succulents do not require vast amounts of water, so give them a small drink every 2 to 3 weeks. Do not drench the soil with water, and a light misting of the leaves every month will keep them happy. Succulents do prefer an outside environment, but if this is not possible for you, place in a bright, sunny window with plenty of light. They may not flourish as they would outdoors, and thus may have a limited life.

Please note that we line our planters to prevent water seeping out. However, we do recommend that protective material is placed under your planter if placed on wood or porous furniture.
