How to revive the faded roses
So, how to keep flowers in a vase longest time, we’ve already discussed. However, what if the flowers have started sounding the first signs of wilting? We noticed that the buds bowed heads, the leaves began to turn yellow or fall off?
Fast fading occurs, primarily, due to the fact that moisture is lost due to evaporation of water. This process begins with the moment when the flower was cut off from the bush. In general, the process of withering reversible, however, to a certain point, after which no resuscitation will not be allowed to increase their lifespan.
If the flowers have just started to fade, it is necessary to hold them for a while in the cool water, at least two or three hours, but it is better for 12-14 hours, and cleared of thorns. After this procedure, the head drooping roses should rise. If it does not, then we can scrape a little skin over the cut-off level at 5-7- centimeters, then sear the cut over the fire. In addition, each bud should wrap cellophane. So you are simulating a kind of homemade greenhouse.
If the above method does not help, it is necessary to use drastic measures resuscitation. What to do to roses were longer, if you notice the beginning of withering flowers?
