Get the Right Flowers

Use a Clean Flower Vase

Cut the Flower Stems
Before inserting the flowers in the flower vase, slightly cut the stem using a pair of scissors or knife. Disinfect the pair of scissors or the knife before cutting to avoid any chances of introducing bacteria to the flower stem.
Place your Flower Vase far From Fruits

Refresh the Water Regularly
