CALLA LILY FLOWER CARE

The picture of elegance, these unique flowers can bloom in either full or miniature sizes and also in a variety of colors. Calla lilies should be handled delicately as the blooms tend to bruise easily. Also, once the blooms are cut, they will no longer unfold; therefore, the best, most costly calla lilies are the ones cut at the peak of blossoming. When cut, the stem of the calla lily tends to curl up. To prevent air from coming into the stem, place an elastic band around each lily stem during the first hour of hydration.

DAFFODIL FLOWER CARE

Daffodils are an extremely popular and well-loved flower, but they release a substance harmful to other flowers. Because of this, they are best kept to themselves when used in arrangements. If they are included in a mixed bouquet, separate the daffodils, soak them overnight and then introduce them back into your arrangement.

GERBERA DAISY FLOWER CARE

Available in a bright variety of hues, these beautiful and cheerfully colored flowers are known to drink in lots of water, so be sure to check them daily. They are also sensitive to fluoride, so you may want to use distilled water. Your Gerbera daisies may arrive with a protective sleeve or "cap" on the bloom and a straw around each stem. These are used by growers to protect the flowers during transportation. Carefully remove the caps, but for added support leave the straws on the stems for the first 4-5 hours, during initial hydration. Gerbera daisies love fresh water, so re-cut their stems every few days.

GLADIOLUS FLOWER CARE

Named for the gladiator's sword because of its size and shape, this breathtaking member of the lily family is beloved for its dramatic height, wide range of colors and longevity. Gladiolus stems are usually delivered with one to three buds open near the base of the stalk; the rest will open in succession over the lifespan of the floral bouquet. Remove older gladiola blooms after they wilt to improve the overall appearance of your arrangement.

HYDRANGEA FLOWER CARE

Hydrangeas are beloved for their beautiful, cloud-like blooms, and they look lovely both in mixed bouquets and on their own.

LILY FLOWER CARE

There are three main types of lilies: Asiatic, Oriental and LA Hybrid. Asiatic lilies tend to have smaller blooms, but come in a vast array of colors. Oriental lilies have large blooms, a stronger fragrance and tend to last longer than other varieties. LA hybrid lilies have medium-sized blooms and tend to outlast Asiatic lilies. As blooms unfold, be careful not to touch the pollen on the flowers' anthers because it can stain upholstery and clothing. To prevent this from happening, some people choose to remove the pollen by carefully wiping it off with a tissue, or they clip off and discard the anthers altogether. If pollen does get on fabric, let it dry in the sun then try lifting it with cellophane tape, a cotton swab or a soft cloth. You can also try a household fabric stain remover or dry cleaning. Never wipe it with water as that will set the stain.

ORCHID FLOWER CARE

Orchids are the most complex, advanced and successful family of flowers on the planet, with approximately 25,000 species occurring naturally throughout the world. Orchids are sensitive to sun, heat and drafts, so be sure and display your orchid arrangement away from direct sunlight, heat-generating appliances and fans. Since orchids drink in water not only from their stems but also directly through their blooms, you should also mist them with cool water, especially upon arrival.

PERUVIAN LILY FLOWER CARE

Peruvian lilies, also known as alstroemeria, add lush, vibrant color to a mixed bouquet and look just as magnificent on their own. They are known for their long-lasting blooms, but they tend to dehydrate easily. If your Peruvian lilies are wilting, add room temperature water mixed with flower food (provided with your bouquet) and they should perk up within the next 8-12 hours.

ROSE FLOWER CARE

Roses are possibly the most beloved of all flowers. Your FTD roses may arrive with guard petals surrounding the outside of the blooms. These petals are left on to protect the blooms during shipment and should be removed to increase the beauty of your rose bouquet. Roses are thirsty flowers, so check them daily to make sure they have enough water. If a rose wilts and becomes limp, remove it from the bouquet and re-cut the stem under running water. Re-hydrate the flower in room temperature water mixed with flower food (provided with your bouquet) until the rose bloom becomes firm. The rose can then be returned to the bouquet.

TULIP FLOWER CARE

Tulips are one of the most popular flowers of all time and come in a variety of colors, heights and shapes. Be aware that tulips can grow almost an inch daily, even when cut. Tulips also naturally bend toward the light, so carefully consider placement to avoid a lopsided bouquet. When your tulips first arrive, it is best to keep them in the protective wrap while hydrating for the first 4-5 hours to help straighten and support the stems.
