Kicking off With the Grower

To kick off the 411 on rose care, it's important to begin with what is known as a 'bent neck' in a rose. This happens when the stem directly beneath the bud is not strong enough to support the growing flower, causing it to bend. A good post-harvest treatment at the grower prevents this issue such as the Chrysal RVB.

This product helps in taking better care of your roses because it promotes water intake and flower development while preventing early aging and bent neck. Moreover, roses must also be cut at a specific stage because flowers that are cut too early are more prone to this bending, whereas roses cut too late are more prone to damage.

Recommended Rose Care Tips for Florists

The best rose treatment in store involves using a Chrysal Professional 2 solution. This keeps the roses in good condition, preserves their color, and keeps the flowers from opening up too much. Your roses will last much longer, and you will have far less waste. On the other side, Professional 3 is suitable for floral arrangements and vases because it contains essential nutrients for your flowers to bloom while also keeping them fresh for up to 60% longer.

Let's move on to care tips for consumers! PS: take note because these tips are great pieces of advice to see your roses growing vigorously.

Rose Care Tips for Consumers

For consumers seeking to prolong the allure of their roses, a careful approach to care becomes paramount. The care process begins with a precise cut, wherein a modest 2-5 cm should be delicately snipped from the stem, ensuring a clean surface for optimal water absorption. Employing a sharp knife or secateurs is essential, as a clean cut minimizes the risk of bacterial contamination, promoting the overall health and longevity of the blooms.

The role of Chrysal Supreme Rosa flower food cannot be overstated while caring for your roses. This specialized flower food enriches the vase water with essential nutrients that nourish the roses and enhance their vibrancy. Simultaneously, consumers are advised to remove the lower leaves, preventing their submersion in water and potential bacterial growth, a step that ensures the purity of the vase environment.

To further safeguard the beauty of roses, a strategic placement away from ripening fruit, drafts, and direct sunlight is recommended. As the water level in the vase naturally diminishes, consumers are encouraged to play an active role in the preservation process by topping up the vase with both water and the specialized flower food when it reaches approximately one-third capacity. This conscientious care routine ensures their grace long after they have found a place in the home.
