Roses in a flask: FAQ
Roses in a glass flask - a product that has been the most trendy, fashionable and desirable gift for several years - still raises many questions and doubts. In this article, we, as a manufacturer, will try to answer the most frequently asked questions and clarify their lifespan, manufacturing methods and much more. Before you buy a rose in a flask, we recommend that you read this information.
Question 1. Oh, what, are they alive?
Roses in flasks belong to the class of stabilized flowers, and technically they cannot be called alive, since the processes of photosynthesis and regeneration are blocked in them. However, it is still rather a living flower, since it would be definitely wrong to call it artificial.
Question 2. What do they do with them that they stand for so long?
Thanks to modern technologies, almost everything has become possible, including literally stopping the moment! After the flower has been grown on a plantation and has entered the optimal growth phase, all natural moisture is evaporated from it in a special way, and a high-tech patented composition based on glycerin and a number of acids mixed in a certain proportion is introduced instead. Thanks to this, the processes of photosynthesis are completely suspended, and with them, decomposition and, accordingly, wilting.
Roses in a flask: FAQ
Question 6. Is the rose directly stabilized in its entirety?
No, it is impossible to stabilize a whole rose with a stem. The rosebud, stems and foliage have different technologies and stabilization periods. Another way to identify a scammer selling roses in glass flasks is to claim that his flowers will stabilize right in their entirety, since most dealers do not understand such nuances. For production, buds, stems and other components come separately.
Question 7. Can other flowers be stabilized?
Yes, of course, in addition to stabilized roses, there are daisies, orchids, hydrangeas, and much more. Stabilization technology may vary depending on the characteristics of the flower structure, and not all buds are subject to stabilization.
Question 8. Where are stabilized roses made?
All large plantations are located in evergreen hot countries, the two main ones being Ecuador and Kenya. In addition to large-scale production, where hundreds of people are involved, an appropriate climate is also necessary in order to grow the perfect flower, which will subsequently be stabilized. In countries such as the Netherlands, where luxurious fresh-cut flowers exist, there is no room for stabilization.
Question 9. Can I make my own stabilized rose? We have glycerin!
Unfortunately, it is impossible to make a rose in a flask on your own at home. In addition to the rose itself and glycerin, a huge production facility with expensive equipment is required, as well as special temperature and light conditions, which cannot be provided in handicraft production.
Well, we hope we have answered the most popular questions about roses in a flask and preserved flowers! If you have any questions, please contact the phone numbers listed on the website, or leave a request for a call back, and our managers will be happy to advise you on any issues related to stabilized flowers!
Question 3. And how long will he live like this?
The average life span of a stabilized flower is 3 to 5 years. The question of how long a rose lives in a flask worries all buyers and is a reason for speculation by scammers who promise almost eternal life for their rose, up to 10 years, but this is from the realm of science fiction. If you follow the simple rules for using a rose in glass, you can extend its life up to 5 years, but after this period the composition of the flower will gradually evaporate and the flower will become dry and brittle. When buying in our store, each flower is accompanied by a certificate of quality with the date of manufacture and a care instruction.
Question 4. Do they smell?
By itself, the stabilized flower does not smell of anything, but, if desired, it can be flavored (this service is free for us). The main thing is not to try to do it yourself with the help of perfume or eau de toilette, it can be detrimental to delicate petals!
Question 5. Wow, how many colors are they painted or what?
All rosebuds to be stabilized are initially white, and only at one of the last stages they are painted in different colors. On large plantations, the number of shades exceeds 50!
