I received 2 bunches of flowers recently. One bunch of carnations for Valentine's Day the second bunch were tropical flowers for my birthday. The carnations look like I just bought them yesterday and my Birds of Paridise are still looking beautiful! My guilty pleasure is having cut flowers in my house, so I will definately be doing this solution again! Thanks for the recipe!
My DH bought me 1/2 dozen red roses for Mother's Day. I clipped the end of the stems and placed them in a vase with this recipe. The first day the roses were opening nicely and looked wonderful. The second and third day 4 of my roses along with the baby's breath and leaves had wilted. I was going to throw them away and decided to wait a day or two and very happy I did. My roses perked back up and were such a pretty red that they looked like they were velvet. I also used tap water and next time will use bottled water. My roses lasted 6 days which is pretty good for me.
I used it with gerbera daisies. One vase had the vinegar recipe the other had plain water. The flowers look the same but the vinegar water looks clearer. I had the change the plain water vase because the water was murky.
