Flower Care

Bloominous sources the best flowers in the world direct from the farm.  Unlike flowers you get from the florist, wholesaler, or market, Bloominous flowers are cut-to-order, and in some cases planted-to-your-order.  Because our flowers are shipped fresh from the farm, they need about 1-2 days to fully bloom.  This is by design so that you have the most beautiful blooms possible for your event or wedding.

5 Simple Steps to Get Started

  1. Upon receiving your flowers, remove them from the kit.
  2. Cut diagonally about 1 inch from the bottom of the stems under running water.
  3. Fill containers with water and put in the "flower food" we provided.
  4. Put the flowers in the containers to begin the hydration process.  Hydrate for at least 4 hours, 12 hours for optimal hydration.
  5. Keep the flowers in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight and excessive heat.  Temperatures 75°F and below are good, the lower the better.


Useful Tips

  1. If you don't plan on arranging within 24 hours of hydration, just replace the water.  Additional flower food is not necessary at this point.
  2. If you want the flowers to bloom a little faster, slightly warmer temperature 75-80°F will speed it up.  Cool the temperature to slow it down.
  3. Some flowers look more "wilted" before hydration.  This is normal - like a green banana.  Just hydrate and watch your flowers bloom.  If they don't bloom, we'll give you your money back - plain and simple.
  4. We've put together a trial kit for each of our collections discounted below our cost.  This is so that you can experience first-hand the quality of our flowers and the Bloominous Promise of beautiful and easy DIY.
