In April, lilies fill the streets of Hanoi. To have beautiful lilies, bring the weather colors according to the season. The lily is colorless, not brilliant… but has pure beauty. Pride in pure and cool white… also seems to make people feel more comfortable.
Also because of its natural beauty, subtle yet seductive fragrance, the lily is referred to as the “April flower”.
How to keep lilies fresh for a long time, few people know:
Choose to buy fresh lilies
Choose flowers: To choose beautiful lilies, you must choose flowers that are in full bloom. Must remove branches with blooming flowers. Therefore, when brought home to play, it will not be fresh for long.
Choose a flower branch: You should choose a flower branch with 3-5 flowers, not a branch with 6-8 flowers. Since there are a lot of flowers, they will be small and drooping, which will not look good. It should be selected so that most of the branches have blooming and half-opened buds, and the green leaves are intact and firm.
Cut flower branch
This will increase the area of contact of the wound with water. Make flower branches absorb water better. Ideally, you should trim the branches with each daily water change.
With a flower bud … to not bloom forever, you can completely force it to bloom. Using two fingertips, gently separate the top of the petal and gently blow into it.
A note for you when arranging lilies is to remove the top of the stamens because when the flowers are large. The pollen will fall and stain the petals. You have to pluck the ends of the stamens from the stamens.
Don’t let the leaves be submerged in water
The submerged leaves will cause bacteria, causing the flowers to wither and the flowerpot to emit an unpleasant odor. Therefore, before planting, trim all the lower leaves.
Put the “magic potion” into the jar
Before arranging flowers, crush a few aspirin tablets and mix them with the water used for arranging the lilies. The concentration of acid in the water will increase, gradually absorbing the stems and keeping the flowers fresh longer. In addition, putting coins in a vase can also keep the flowers fresh for a long time because the metal acts as a natural antibacterial which will help the flower stalks rot longer. Or it can be mixed with flower arrangement mouthwash, it can remove plaque and unpleasant odors in flower vases.
Change water every day
The best time to change the water is in the morning and evening. Helps keep bottled water clean and floral water more easily absorbed. Note, wash the jar until clean. If washing with soap, make sure to rinse thoroughly with soap as this will change the pH of the water and cause the flowers to spoil quickly.
Store in a cool place
Hot climates and sun are the main factors that cause your flowerpots to wither quickly, sometimes in just a few hours. Always remember to put the flower pot in a cool place, away from sunlight. During the day the weather is too hot. If possible, you should place the vase in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
