Tropical Flower FAQS
How do you
loose arrangement just clip the ends, place the stems in the vase,
pull flowers out and trim a bit here and there until you have a
pleasing overall shape - this leaves the flowers available for
regular trimming so they stay fresh the longest. A more
planned arrangement is achieved by placing the stems one at a time
in one hand until you're happy with the look, tie the stems
together, and trim the bottom of the stems even.
the longest-lasting flowers?
Anthuriums will last from 7 to 14 days depending on care and
variety. Dendrobium Orchids will last from 5 to 8 days, while
Oncidium Orchids will last 7 to 10 days. Tropicals vary
widely, but should last up to 5 days for the most delicate, 8 days
for the hardier types. All of this depends not only on the
flower care in the home, but also the climatic conditions. All
tropical flowers need fresh water, misting, and avoidance of heat
sources and drafts.
What flowers are
easiest to arrange? The Orchids are the very easiest,
simply place in a vase and they will naturally arch and fill the
space beautifully. Anthuriums and Tropicals encourage
creativity - they look beautiful just placed in a vase (exactly what
our pictures show), or you can get very artistic experimenting with
different sizes and placement of stems.
