Flowers represent our inner emotions and transform the everyday into a special occasion. When receiving fresh flowers, it is important to know about basic maintenance and care in order to enjoy your gift to its fullest potential. Below are some easy tips to get you started.

Roses

  1. Remove the outside guard petals. These petals were left on to protect the bloom during shipment.
  2. Cut 1 inch off the bottom of each stem with a sharp knife or floral scissors and remove any leaves that will come in contact with the water in the vase.
  3. Fill the vase with tepid water and add 1 packet of flower food.
  4. Be sure to keep your bouquet away from direct sunlight, drafty areas or high heat to insure a long life.
  5. To keep your bouquet fresh, re-cut the stems every few days and replace the water with fresh water.

Care Tips for Orchid Plants
Plants are a lovely way to brighten up the indoors, whether it be the home or the office. Though most blooming plants, such as azaleas, gardenias, and hydrangeas, will eventually need to be planted outdoors, there is some basic maintenance and care that can ensure your indoor plants a long life.

Light & Temperature
Place your orchid in an area receiving very bright light. Bright indirect light will be sufficient for the orchid after you receive it. However, in order to rebloom, it is necessary to provide morning sunlight, such as near an east-facing window, or filtered sunlight. Protection from hot direct sunlight is necessary.

Temperatures between 60 and 80F are best from spring through fall when the orchid is actively growing, but temperatures as low as 50 and as high as 95F are readily tolerated. During winter months, lower night temperatures of 50 to 55F and day temperatures of 60 to 65F are suitable. When house interior air tends to be dry and temperatures exceed 70F, mist the plant daily to increase humidity, especially during the flowering season. Extra humidity can also be provided by standing the plant on a tray of moistened pebbles.

Water
Orchids like to dry out nearly completely before they are watered again. During the warm growing season, watering twice a week is sufficient. During the cooler winter season, water less often: once every two weeks is often adequate. Pour enough water evenly over the soil surface to thoroughly moisten the bark medium, and allow it to drain well. It is important that the pot does not sit in water so be sure to completely empty the drainage water from the decorative container. If a white deposit builds up on the soil surface, it is likely that your tap water is high in minerals. Use distilled water or mix tap water with distilled water.

Fertilizing
During the active growing period (spring through early fall), fertilize your orchid every fourth watering. Fertilizing a dry plant can damage its roots so be sure to water the plant thoroughly before doing so. You may use a water soluble houseplant fertilizer or, if available, a fertilizer specifically for orchids.

Repotting
Every two years in the springtime, repot the orchid plant into the next larger size container in orchid bark.

Insect Control
Orchid plants are susceptible to spider mites. Check for them often on new growths and on the undersides of leaves. If insects are present, spray with a household plant insecticide/miticide or insecticidal soap following label instructions. Spray the leaves and stems only, avoiding the flowers. A weekly wiping off of the upper and lower leaf surfaces with a dampened sponge will help prevent infestations.

Toxicity
Plant material, such as this product, should not be eaten. While most plants are harmless, some contain toxins.
