Conditioning cut flowers is just a way to ensure the plants longevity.
  1. Fill a clean bucket with cool water and add in 1 tablespoon of flower food.
  2. Once you have picked your flowers then remove all foliage that might fall into the water and well as thorns or any damaged parts.
  3. Cut at least 2 inches off each stem at an angle and put the flowers in water to allow the flower to soak up water.
  4. Arrange these flowers in your favorite vase with the proper water level added.

If your plant oozes a milky sap then dip the cut ends in boiling water for 10-15 seconds to seal the cuts.
