Specific Flower Care
- Breakage is possible, reserve shorter stems for small bud vases as blooms can be used at any length!
- To encourage opening, gently pinch the base of the bloom and fluff the petals with your fingers. Carnations are sturdy and this will not hurt them! Don’t be afraid!
- Monitor the water quality, if you notice it becomes off-color, replace the water, as murky water can cause rot.
