Long lasting flowers in vase

Everyone agreed that flowers are the best gift ever! However, keeping that beautiful bouquet of flowers alive may seem difficult. I also got bouquet of flowers but it died few days later. Wuuu, I'm so sad!! Soon after that, someone told me how to handle this problems. 

  • Next time if you get the fresh colorfulness bouquet of flowers, crash the aspirin tablets and add the powder to a vase filled with water. Aspirin power helps to kill the algae and bacteria live in the water
  • Frequently change the water.
  • However if you dont like the aspirin idea, you can also try add some lemon juice or bleach or 1 cent coins in the water to keep flowers stay last for 7 to 14 days.
  • The way you cut the peduncle of the flowers also will affect the flowers lifetime. It should be like this:

Here are some popular flowers that which can remain up to 2 weeks indeed:

Carnations (7 - 14 days)

Lilies (7 - 14 days)

Sunflowers (6 - 12 days)
