Care of chrysanths as cut flowers

Chrysanthemums are very strong yet are also very sensitive to draughts and heat sources. Never place them in full sun or in a draught. After purchase, fill clean flower vases with sufficient clean water and arrange the chrysanths in them, after first cutting off the bottom of the stem diagonally and removing the lowest leaves (which will otherwise hang in the water). The leaves should never touch the water as this shortens the life of a chrysanth.

With so many colours and types available, florists often mix chrysanths to create an attractive, multi-coloured bouquet. Thanks to their popularity in most parts of the world, more chrysanthemums are produced every year than the highly popular rose. However, check that they do not have any mould on the stem when you buy them. This is most likely to happen when the flowers are packed in cellophane. The cellophane creates condensation around the flower, causing mould.

Remember too that chrysanths are very thirsty flowers. Top up the water in the vase regularly, or even better, clean the vase and fill it with fresh water. Depending on the type of chrysanthemum, your bouquet will then give you 1 to 3 weeks of pleasure.
