To flowers stood as long as possible, cut off not quite blooming buds are just slightly open.

As for water, the ideal would be rain or melted snow. But I understand that this is not always at hand, so that it can replace conventional defended.
- pruning. Before you put the bouquet in a vase, you need to prune each stem at an angle as large as possible. Similar procedure to perform best under a stream of cold water. Since the plant can absorb as much as possible the number-needed moisture.

This should be done every day, every time thoroughly washing the bowl.
