Bacteria will make flowers wilt faster and this is especially true of greenhouse flowers. Extend your greenhouse flowers beauty by always placing them in a clean vase. Remove any leaves fall into the water. Leaves immersed in water will rot and create a build-up of bacteria, which leads to wilting.


The fresher the flowers are, the longer they will last and this is also true with commercially grown greenhouse flowers. When selecting greenhouse grown flowers always look for the flowers that are half opened as they will last longer than the flowers in full bloom.


Excessive heat causes flowers to wilt. Avoid placing the flowers in a hot area and try to place them in a cool room to ensure they last longer.
