We’re here to hydrangea-save you with specific tips on how to best take care of them for optimal results.

  • Unpack your gorgeous flowers carefully after receiving them.
     

  • Cut the stem diagonally before placing them in the hydrating bags.
     

  • The containers where you place the flowers must be disinfected with a chlorine solution.
     

  • The moisturizing solution (Chrysal professional #1) must be prepared in cold water prior to placing your hydrangeas in the water. Make sure to leave the flowers for 6 to 12 hours in this solution.
     

  • Then place the flowers in Chrysal professional #2 or similar. Change this solution every 2 or 3 days or when it is uncolored cutting the stems again diagonally.
     

  • Keep the flowers in a fresh space avoiding direct sunlight and excessive temperatures as this might make the petals wilt and turn brown.
     

  • If a flower presents dehydration it can be submerged in iced water for 5 minutes and then placed back in the moisturizing solution. The flower will recover in about 30 minutes.
