How Should I Care for my Preserved Flowers?

Once purchasing preserved flowers from Zetta Florence, there are important tips to note when caring for them. Remember, if you are gifting preserved flowers for Mother’s Day, be sure to pass on the following tips to ensure the preserved flowers are provided with the best care and remain vibrant!

Keep Preserved Flowers Out of Direct Sunlight

One of the most important tips when caring for preserved flowers is to situate your preserved flowers in a location where they will not be in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will rapidly fade or discolour preserved flowers! To maintain the rich and vibrant colours of our preserved flowers, place the preserved flowers in indirect or low-light locations in your space.

Keep your Preserved Flowers Dry

As the flowers have been preserved, there is no need to water them. Exposure to water will cause damage to preserved flowers and potentially result in the flowers rotting. In light of this, preserved flowers are best stored in an empty vase and in a room that is not humid or regularly wet (such as bathrooms and outdoor areas).

Handle Preserved Flowers with Care

Preserved flowers are delicate and can be easily broken if not handled with care. Prevent damage to your preserved flowers by avoiding handling them too often and being careful when touching or moving them around your space.

Keep your Preserved Flowers Dust Free

As your preserved flowers are long lasting, they are likely to accrue dust as any other object in your space will. To remove dust, either using a gentle feather duster, soft cloth or a hair dryer on a low and cool setting.

Display your Preserved Flowers in a Safe Spot

When displaying your preserved flowers, ensure they are out of reach of children and animals, as well as well away from hazards such as candles and fireplaces. We recommend placing them well above the floor, such as a high bench, cabinet or table top.
