Women love when they are given bouquets of flowers, it's so romantic! You always want such gifts to be kept as long as possible. But, unfortunately, their beauty quickly fades. Often it turns out that the roses, presented literally the day before, have already lost their beauty and wilted. But do not despair, there is a way out of this situation!
In order to extend the life of cut roses, you can resort to the following manipulations:
- Place the ends of the stems in the water and update the sections with a sharp knife. In the water, the stems should be cut off so that air caps will form in their capillaries, which will prevent further absorption of moisture. It is better not to use scissors for trimming - they will squeeze the stems, as a result, their ability to absorb water will decrease;
- The bottom of the stem, at a height of approximately 5 cm, should be trimmed from the upper hard skin. You can still stiffen the stiff tip of the stem with a hammer - it will be much easier for the roses to soak up the liquid;
- Carefully remove the lower thorns and leaves, because only bare flower stems should be in the water;
- A flower vase should always be clean, and water should be poured in advance. It will be necessary to change it daily, at the same time regularly updating sections of stalks.
To prevent the reproduction of putrefactive bacteria in water, one of the following means can be added to it:
- Several crystals of pharmaceutical potassium permanganate;
- 1-2 tablets of activated carbon;
- A small pinch of borax (boric acid);
- 1 drop of dishwashing liquid or "Whiteness".
In order to extend the life of cut roses, experts advise to add ½ part of aspirin tablets, 1 tbsp to the water. l regular sugar, as well as 1 tsp. vinegar - these proportions are calculated for 1 liter of water.
You can also update the sections and place the roses in cold water overnight. In the morning you can find that the leaves have freshened up, and the heads of the flowers, which have wilted before, have risen again.
