Your Lily Pads just arrived! Now they need to be hydrated and processed. Carefully unpack your Lily Pads. All wholesale greens look dry upon arrival and will need to be hydrated. It is important to give your wholesale lily pads time to hydrate and replenish. Depending on the variety purchased, some varieties of water lily pads may need 12 to 24 hours to hydrate and perk up. Given that this unique green is a water-based plant, the entire pad will need to be hydrated from stem to body. Without proper hydration, the leaves will quickly begin to dry and shrivel.
CARE AND HANDLING FOR LILY PADS
- Keep Water Lily Pads in a shaded, cool, relatively humid area (not cooler than 60F). Lily Pads can be submerged under water for a few hours to be hydrated. Lily Pads generally arrive ready to be used or displayed.
- Store away from heat and direct sunlight
- Since Lily Pads are water based, some light washing may be needed to remove any attached soil
