Fill the vase with water and fill it up till the mark of three or four inches maximum and add any of the floral solutions. The solution will prevent accumulation of bacteria or any other molds. Place the flowers in a suitable place. Where the temperature is no more than eighty degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure that the flowers not placed directly in the sunlight.
  • Make the stems of the flower clean, where they are dipped in the water. Clear any leaves from the base of the stem. This will prevent the growth of bacteria and the water will also stay fresh. You might need to the trim the bottom of the flower stem at least by half an inch to make sure that they work perfectly. All you need to do is allow the stems to breathe and take their food from water and allow the flowers to glow.
  • You can trim the stems by half an inch after every few days and while, you do this process make sure that the stems are placed in warm water.
