Keep Orchids in filtered water at all times. Ideal temperature to achieve long lasting blooms is 55F to 65F during the day and 60F to 62F at night.

They come ready to be displayed and do not need to be processed before your wedding or event. DO NOT place orchids in the refrigerator since this will damage their blooms.
Whole Blossoms Orchids come with individual water feeding tubes to ensure proper hydration from the moment that they are cut to the moment that you receive them.
If orchids are going to be arranged after 3 days of being received, cut about one inch of the stem at an angle under water (with a sharp knife NOT scissors). Remove foliage that could fall under water to avoid bacteria to build‐in and place the flowers in clean, fresh, warm, filtered water (100F‐105F). Rehydrate for at least an hour before using and add floral preservative. If the Orchids are not going to be displayed immediately, try to keep them in a fresh place preferably (50F‐55F) and at least 80% humidity in fresh water with floral preservative. Replace water and floral preservative every other day to ensure freshness.
