Hawaiian Flower Care Instructions

Hawaiian flower care instructions, identification guide and arranging ideas.  Follow this guide to give your tropical flowers longest life.  Instructions are included with every order.

Carefully unpack your fresh tropical flowers and remove them from the box as soon as they arrive.

For anthuriums, orchids and gingers soak the entire flower under lukewarm water for about 10 minutes.  This will extend the life of your flowers.

All flowers should have the stems held under water as you cut about an inch off the end of each stem.

Place the freshly cut stems in a vase or other container of water.

Do not refrigerate stems.

Cut about an inch off each stem and replace the water every 2 or 3 days.

Arranging Your Flowers

Choose a sturdy vase or use a tray with floral foam.

Begin with the largest or your favorite flower as a focal point.

Make sure where you are going to place each flower before cutting the stem.

Add the smaller flowers around the focal point.

Use the greenery to fill in spaces.

Leaves can be cut, bent or folded as you like.

Orchid stems can be cut in half to create two shorter stems.

Keep your display out of drafts or direct sunlight.

Do not refrigerate.

Lei, Corsage and Orchid Care

Unpack maile, haku, leaf or flower leis and loose orchid blossoms upon arrival.

If they are a little dry, mist with clean, lukewarm water and gently shake off any excess.  Do not mist ti leaf leis.

Keep your corsage, haku, lei or loose orchid blossoms in a closed bag in the refrigerator.  They can be returned to the refrigerator after wearing for longer use.

Do not refrigerate anthurium corsages.  The cold will turn them black.
