HK's tips on how to care for your flowers
Bouquet and Vase Arrangements: We suggest you add water every 2-3 days, keeping the vase full to the top. This will help the longevity of your flowers.
Custom Box Arrangements: Our flowers are packed into a small space which makes it harder to know where water levels are. These boxes should be watered every 2-3 days, its best to use a small cup to add water to middle of arrangements, and try to not overflow it.
Succulents and Orchid Plants: can go without water for a while. If you keep succulents in doors, water every 14 to 21 days when soil has dried out completely. Do not over water as they can mold, dry up and end up dying. For orchids, its best to water once a month, do not overwater as they can rot. Another helpful tip: mist orchid flowers once a week, this will help them drink water and stay fresher longer.
HK Flowers recommends these other helpful tips: keep flowers in a cool spot, away from sunlight, extreme heat, stovetops, or furnaces. Avoid ripping fruit near flowers as this will speed up your flower arrangement life. Please note that not all flowers have the same lifespan, as these are fresh cut flowers and some may go before others. As flowers begin to wilt you can remove them by snipping them out, this will prevent the other flowers from dying as they will stay alive longer. Any bud stems will open up during the week.
These are HK Flowers helpful tips to keeping your arrangement alive longer. However all our arrangements have cut flowers which makes them perishable from the moment they are cut and are subject to variable conditions such as weather, placement, transport, air quality, watering and water levels, along with general care. Due to these being fresh cut flowers, any factors or variable conditions that affect the lifespan, we are not able to offer any guarantees or refunds. Please read our Satisfaction Guarantee for more information.
Follow these specific guidelines for our Forever Roses: these are real roses, preserved to last for more than a year. Do Not remove from container as this will damage arrangement. Do Not water the roses or keep them in direct sunlight, as they will fade in color. Make sure roses are in a room temperature environment, away from the window. Only use a feather duster to lightly dust off arrangement if necessary. Do Not place anything on top of arrangements, as this can damage them.
