How To Prolong The Life Of Cut Flowers Using Copper Coins And Other Genius Tricks

Life without flowers is pretty sad! Beautiful colored plants can be a sign of eternal love, respect or even appreciation. We offer flowers to our mothers, grandparents and friends and we also receive them from the important people in our lives.

Coke
If you have Coke leftovers, which is basically impossible, don’t throw them. Pour them in the flower vase. The sugar found in the juice will prolong the life of your flowers.

Hair spray
As hair spray fixes your hair, this product will do the same with your flowers, making them last longer. So, spray your flower bouquet with hair spray, from a distance of 20-30 centimeters, just below the leaves and petals.

Apple vinegar
To extend the life of flowers in the vase, add 2 tablespoons of apple vinegar and 2 tablespoons of sugar to the water. Change the water after a few days so the flowers won’t dry out.

Vodka
The secret of prolonging the life of cut flowers is to prevent the growth of bacteria and the replacement of nutrients that the flower would normally extract from the soil. Add a few drops of vodka and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a vase of water for antibacterial action. Change the water every day and don’t forget to add vodka and sugar.

Aspirin
Another way you can extend the life of flowers is to crush an aspirin and put it in a vase. Don’t forget to change the water after a few days and repeat the procedure.

Bleach
Freshly cut flowers will last longer if you add 1/4 teaspoon of bleach to 1 liter of water. Another popular recipe requires 3 drops of bleach and 1 teaspoon of sugar to 1 liter of water. In this way, bacteria will no longer develop into water.

Coins
Freshly cut daisies will last longer if you add a few copper coins and a sugar cube to the water bowl. Copper acts as an acidifying agent that prevents the growth of bacteria.

Sugar
The most common method of prolonging the life of flowers in vase is to add sugar to water. Dissolve 3 tablespoons of sugar in 3 tablespoons of apple vinegar and use the result per liter of water. Sugar feeds the plants, while vinegar prevents the growth of bacteria.
