Ranunculus Care & Handling Guide

Assorted Colors Ranunculus

Upon arrival the flower may appear to be a bit wilted and tired, all they are in need of is a bit of water. They are thirsty. Gently unpack the flowers from the box and packaging.

Ranunculus have hollow stems and are susceptible to bending and crushing. Lay them out to separate them from each other (intertwining may have occurred during shipment). Prepare the vase or bucket with clean water enough to submerge the stems in 3-4 inches of water. Remove any foliage that will be in the water to prevent the water from getting any bacteria from the foliage.

Cut the stems of the blooms to the desired height and place in enough water to allow them to bloom and rehydrate. After a minimum of 2-3 hours you can arrange your blooms. To prolong the life of your blooms please change the water and re-cut the stems every 2-3 days.
