Every flower requires something different from other for increasing their life as well as glory. Under mentioned are some flowers as well as information about their care taking.
King of flowers-Rose: The life of a single rose is not more than 10 to 12 days when placed into a vase. However from the 5th or 6th day it starts loosing its beauty. If the flower gets faded, just cut the stem again and dip almost 3 cm of the stem into boiling water for few minutes. Fill the vase with cold water and place the flower once again into it. It works like magic.
Delightful Daffodils: This is a flower symbol of spring. Using them for home decoration helps to add brightness into the rooms. Taking care of daffodils is slightly different.
