By keeping your flower arrangement in a cool, dark place, that way it slows down their demise. So, if your potted plants need sunlight to grow, oppositely your cut flowers don’t need the bright light of the sun to stay fresh and longer.

 

4. Keep Your Flowers Away From Any Ripening Fruits or Vegetable

Ripening fruits and vegetables emit an odorless ethylene gas that is harmful to your flowers. To keep them safe from harm, avoid placing your arrangement in a place near them.
