Magic Spell Carnations are sold in a bunch (approx. 22-25 stems)
Dianthus caryophyllus (the proper name of Carnation) means “flower of the gods”, and they were often used in Greek and Roman ceremonial crowns. They are mediterranean native. Carnations love water so you need to add 2.5cm-5cm at max. As a result this will prevent stem rot, which carnations are extremely susceptible to.
Care & Conditioning:
- Use a lean vase.
- Hold each carnation next to the vase to determine how much of the stems to remove.
- Cut the stem at a 45-degree angle so it’s easier for the flowers to absorb water and stay healthy.
- When cutting stems, cut them under water to prevent nasty air bubbles.
- Don’t forget to drop the included flower food in your vase of carnations.
- Recut the stems each time you change the water and get rid of any leaves that dwell under the waterline
- Don’t put your carnations in an area that has abnormal heat sources, direct sunlight or cold drafts from the A/C.
- Give your carnations room-temperature water to sip on.
- Change the water at least every two days, and remember to re-cut your stems each time you do.
- To fight off bacteria, add 1/4 tablespoon of bleach per litre of water in the vase.
- If you are out of flower food you should use one tablespoon of sugar to keep your carnations feeling in tip-top shape.
Mayflower Market flowers are sold in bunches as indicated above and wrapped in brown paper, tied with raffia (very much similar to flowers purchased from a street vendor or market in Europe) and delivered to you ready to pop into your favorite vase & brighten up your home or workspace.
