Anthurium flower care for a long-lasting bouquet

If you are looking for gorgeous blooms with an exotic flare to them, you can’t go wrong with an anthurium flower arrangement. These blooms have a truly unique appearance and their texture is remarkable to. If you order these blooms for yourself or you are lucky enough to receive them as a gift, you need to know just how to take care of them. Here’s how to make sure your bouquet lasts as long as possible.

Step 1:

As soon as your anthurium flower bouquet arrives, you need to make sure that you place them in fresh water. This will ensure that they do not become dehydrated while you prepare their new home.

Step 2:

While you anthurium flower arrangement is soaking it up, you can take the time needed to wash and fill your vase with fresh water. Make sure that you add the flower food to the water and stir to dissolve the contents properly. This package helps slow the growth of bacteria and it provides your blooms with some nutrients too.

Step 3:

If possible, you should trim the stems of each flower under water. By doing so, you prevent air bubbles from entering their stems. If air gets into the stem, it causes an obstruction and this can lead to the premature wilting of your bouquet. Make sure that you trim the stems at an angle so that they do not end up resting flat on the bottom of the vase. Again, this obstructs the flow of water and the absorption of nutrients.

Step 4:

Arrange your freshly cut flowers in your vase and pay close attention to ensure that no leaves end up below the waterline. If there are leaves in the vase, remove them since they will shorten the lifespan of your blooms

Step 5:

Display your anthurium flower arrangement in a safe spot. You want to keep it out of the sun and wind. You should also avoid placing it too close to fans or air conditioners. You want your blooms to be in a spot where they will not end up on the floor thanks to an energetic pet or a curious child.

Step 6:

Take the time to monitor your bouquet and inspect each anthurium flower stem daily. Dying flowers release a gas that causes other flowers to perish prematurely. If you see one or more stems start to wilt, you should remove it from the vase right away.

You will notice that your anthurium flower arrangement will automatically last longer than many other cut flowers. That said, by putting in just a little more effort, you can really get the most out of them and this means more joy as well as more value for money.
