So, it’s my birthday. My boyfriend got me roses, but I have nothing to put them in. They’re currently wrapped in a wet paper towel on the counter. How do I keep them alive? @Discussions? I don’t know who to tag, but I’m a tad anxious.
Aww I thought there was gonna be a gif of a tiny girl saying “flower power!” Or hippies…
Alex, fill a vase with water and put the flowers in them. They will last for a few days. I think there is something you could put in the water to help it not die as quickly, but I’m not sure
I tried every cup we have, but they’re too small.
Trim the stems? Consult Google? Google helps sometimes. Also, it’s very sweet what your boyfriend did
I don’t have a vase, though. Nothing is deep enough. The flowers are too big.
Oohh, god, I didn’t think of that. Yeah, he’s very sweet.
Get the giant scissors!
Also, I think it helps give the flowers more water by bringing the star close to the flower supply. But I really don’t know what I’m saying and I’m vaguely recalling what my parents have told me in the past
Sounds reasonable. Thanks.
Water? That typo sneaked in somewhere and I didn’t notice it and my brain doesn’t remember what I was saying. Sorry
As always, consult Google first
Ah, ok. My uncle says to put them in the sink.
Glass of water, tallest glass you can find…tossed crushed aspirin in the water and an old penny.
Sadly, I only have pennies. I have to cut the stems so they can fit. The stems are too long. I’ve never heard of using Aspirin or pennies.
Michi…I don’t think the flowers have a headache…
Hahahahaha! I think it’s used to keep them alive. Not sure how.
Lol, I’m glad you got my joke.
As for your sink…it makes more sense than aspirin and a penny…I guess I understand drug while having minerals and stuff (I literally have no idea what’s inspire of aspirin) but why a penny?
Yeah, I looked. It helps keep them alive.
I want to know the science behind that…but my brain just isn’t in the mood to try and comprehend it right now. Maybe tomorrow at least.
Anyway, I hope this weird conversation helped you Alex >.<
