Flowers Protea care California Resendiz Brothers

All Protea share a common characteristic, excellent care keeping qualities.  Here are some ways to help them last even longer :

  • Unpack the flowers immediately.
  • Cut up to 1/2 inch off the stems and remove leaves that will end up in the water.
  • Store flowers in a floral cooler or refrigerator between 36-50 F.
  • Removing a few leaves around the flower head will enhance the flower display.
  • Use a commercial flower preservative for added longevity.
  • Check water levels frequently, flowers get very thirsty. 
  • Protea dry well by hanging them upside down in a dark location or just let your arrangement dry naturally.
