What Is The Best Way To Make Bunching Flowers Last Longer

Thow Them Away

It’s going to sound strange, but the best way to make bunching flowers, or bouquets as they are also called, last longer is to throw away some of the flowers.

How Does Throwing Away Certain Bunching Flowers Help?

It's all About The Gas

Ethylene gas is produced as flowers, fruit or vegetables wither and die. That gas will speed long the breakdown of other flowers, fruit or vegetables in the area. 

It is estimated that upwards of 30% of flowers perish prematurely due to the harmful effects of exposure to ethylene gasses. 

What is Ethylene Gas?

Ethylene is an odourless, colourless gaseous plant hormone that exists in nature and is also created by man-made sources. It is what helps ripen food if it is picked unripened (for easier transportation) and allows grocery stores to keep a longer shelf life on fruits and vegetables.

But when ethylene gas is produced naturally it what is going to make your flowers die faster.

If one flower starts to die, it will produce ethylene gas, and that gas can make the flowers around it start to wither faster than they otherwise might.

Ever heard the phase “one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch”? That’s what happens to bunching flowers. Because they are in tight proximity, one flower dying can lead to a hole bunch of flowers dying.

Flower Boosters Time Lapse

When we are running our time lapse videos we try to let the flowers do their thing so people an see results in action.

We only take the flowers out to give them fresh water and Flower Boosters cut flower food. 

But by the end of the time lapse, there are a few flowers that definitely need to be removed. Normally, I would remove them before they had a chance to hurt any of the others, which extends the life of the bouquet even better. But for this test I wanted the flowers to be treated like an average person taking them home and only replacing the water.

By selectively removing those that are brown or wilting, it will extend the life of all the other flowers that are left.

This is our time lapse in action…

Why remove the ones that are dying?

It is estimated that upwards of 30% of flowers perish prematurely due to the harmful effects of exposure to ethylene gasses. 

These are the flowers that were struggling. We just cut them off and removed them from the rest of the bunching flowers.

Keeping Bunching Flowers In A Vase

We also downsized the flowers to a smaller vase and cut the stems back to fit properly

This little bit of housekeeping can help the remaining flowers thrive for several more days. Not bad for $10 of bunching flowers from Costco!

While the flowers are certainly fading. These flowers are nearly a month old! How long do your cut flowers usually last?

By day 24 I think these flowers have seen the end. While the heads never drooped, the flowers themselves have started to brown around the edges. Some people might want to push them a little farther, and maybe you could. I’m going to say they had a good run and let them go at this point.
