Your Lambs Ear just arrived! Now they need to be hydrated and processed. All fresh cut greens look dry upon arrival and will need to be hydrated. It is important to give your fresh cut greens a couple of hours to hydrate and replenish. Depending on the variety purchased, some wholesale flowers may need 24 to 36 hours to hydrate and perk up.
CARE AND HANDLING FOR LAMBS EAR
- Place your Lambs Ear in clean, fresh, filtered water. Carefully remove leaves, or foliage that fall under the water level (without tearing the stem skin) to avoid the build-up of bacteria. Cut one inch off the end of the stem in a 45-degree angle (with a sharp knife NOT scissors) to allow water to be better absorbed through the stems. After cutting the stem at an angle, quickly place your greens and fillers in water since it only takes a minute for the stem to dry and seal up.
- Keep your Lambs Ear in a shaded, cool, relatively humid area (not cooler than 40F). Avoid placing your greens and fillers near hot surfaces or environments. Greens and fillers must be in water at all times until they are ready to be used.
- When storing your fresh cut greens, do not move them from hot to cold or cold to hot temperatures to avoid that they get hypothermia. Drastic changes in temperature burns greens and fillers. If you are not planning on using your Lambs Ear within a short period of time, refrigeration is highly recommended.
- Do not keep your fresh cut greens and fillers in the refrigerator overnight since many fruit and vegetable gases can damage your wholesale greens.
