IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Water movement up the stem is critical to the quality and lasting characteristics of fresh flowers. If stems are not cut under water, air might get into the stem and block the ability of water to flow up the stem. By cutting stems under water and placing freshly cut flowers directly into a preservative solution, the end of the stem is sealed with water and air is not permitted to get in the way and clog the stem cells. When stems are cut under water, water is retained on the end of the stem while the stems are placed in the preservative solution.

GREEN PLANTS

Select location with moderately bright light. Protect from direct sun in summer, place near sunny window in winter. Moderately moist soil is preferred. Water thoroughly only after soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering; do not allow plants to stand in water. Drain excess water in saucer at base of pot to prevent root rot and protect furniture. Tropical green plants prefer temperatures that are warm: 70-72 deg F (21-22 deg C) daytimes and 65-70 deg F (18-21 deg C) nights. Avoid excessively hot or cold areas. Fertilize periodically, following manufacturer's directions. KEY TIPS FOR SUCCESS: Provide good light and avoid water-logged soil.

DISH GARDENS

Moderately bright light is preferred. Protect from direct sun in summer; place near sunny window in winter. Moderately moist soil is preferred. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering; do not allow plants to stand in water. Tropical green plants prefer temperatures that are warm: 70-72 deg F (21-22 deg C) daytimes and 65-70 deg F (18-21 deg C) nights. Avoid excessively hot or cold areas. Fertilize periodically, following manufacturer's directions. SPECIAL NOTE: If fresh flowers have been added to your dish garden in water-holding tubes, keep these tubes filled with water so the flowers will stay fresh as long as possible. KEY TIPS FOR SUCCESS: Provide good light and avoid water-logged soil.

EUROPEAN GARDENS

Moderately bright light is preferred. Protect from direct sun in summer; place near sunny window in winter. Moderately moist soil is preferred. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering; do not allow plants to stand in water. SPECIAL NOTE: Some plants in this garden may be in individual pots, which have been placed together in the container. Check for excess water in container liner at base of pots; drain excess water to prevent root rot and protect furniture. Moderate temperatures are ideal: 65-70 deg F (18-21 deg C) daytimes and 60-65 deg F (15-18 deg C) nights. Avoid excessively hot or cold areas. Fertilize periodically, following manufacturer's directions. KEY TIPS FOR SUCCESS: Plants may dry out faster in individual pots. Check often and water as necessary for proper growth.

HANGING PLANTS

Moderately bright light is usually preferred by most green plants used in planters. Place near a sunny window protected from direct sun. Moderately moist soil is preferred. Water thoroughly when soil surface feels dry to the touch. Avoid overwatering or allowing plants to stand in water. Non-draining containers require less frequent watering than those with drainage saucers. Because air circulates around hanging planters, the moisture is used up faster (especially outdoors). Check soil daily. Moderate temperatures are ideal: 65-70 deg F (18-21 deg C) daytimes and 60-65 deg F (15-18 deg C) nights. Avoid excessively hot or cold areas. Fertilize periodically, following manufacturer's directions. KEY TIPS FOR SUCCESS: Remove growing points (1/2" to 1") of branching plants periodically to stimulate bushy and compact growth. Check soil moisture regularly, particularly outdoors.
