Number of Stems
- Growers Bunch - around ten stems, see video for bunch size
- Give everything a fresh cut (about 1 inch off), at an angle, with your snips and put them in fresh water. With greenery, you don't have to worry about crowding the same way you do with flowers.
- Remove any leaves that fall below the waterline of your containers, doing this will help prevent the growth of mould or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.
- You can use Quick Dip (a floral product sold at Michaels/Amazon) on stems to help with hydration.
- Place in warm water.
- Gently separate stems, as smaller branches can tangle and break.
- Your greenery will arrive looking thirsty and sleepy. This is absolutely NORMAL
- Since flowers are a product of Mother Nature, the exact color tones and leaf shape of the greenery may vary to some degree.
- IMPORTANT ** Not every stem will be perfect. I follow the 5% rule, meaning that out of 100 stems, 5 stems may break while unpacking, look a little too mushed, etc. Don't let this stress you out! It's totally normal and to be expected when dealing with fresh/live product.
