Watering: Fill a vase with clean water and place the gladiolus bouquet in it immediately after receiving it. Change the water every two days to keep it fresh. Trim the stems by an inch or two every time you change the water to allow better water absorption.
Temperature and Humidity: Gladiolus cut flowers prefer cool temperatures ranging from 55?F to 65?F (13?C to 18?C). Keep them away from drafts or direct heat sources. Maintain a moderate humidity level in the room to prevent the flowers from drying out.
Vase Selection: Choose a vase that is tall and sturdy enough to support the height of the gladiolus stems. Trim the stems at an angle before placing them in the vase, removing any excess foliage that may be submerged in the water.
Display Location: Find a spot away from direct sunlight for the gladiolus bouquet. Exposure to direct sunlight can cause the flowers to wilt more quickly. Instead, choose a cool and shaded area to display the bouquet, such as a room with ambient light or away from windows.
Trimming and Deadheading: Remove any fading or wilted blooms from the stems to maintain the bouquet's appearance. Trim the bottom of the stems every few days, cutting at an angle to allow for better water absorption.
Handling with Care: Handle the bouquet gently to avoid damaging the delicate blooms. Avoid placing the bouquet near fruits or vegetables, as they release gases that can accelerate wilting.
