Keep them away from direct sunlight
The first thing you need to know is that, unlike other vegetation, the preserved flowers don’t want direct sunlight. Chances are if you put them next to your window or out in the open, they are going to change colors, they will dry out, and they will wither. The colors will fade, and discoloration will appear, especially in flowers that are bright or colorful, so make sure they are not exposed to sun rays for more than a few hours per day.
Don’t water them
The biggest mistake you can make with your preserved flowers is watering them. There are many beautiful types you can choose from, and they are all breathtaking, but also, all of them hate the water and they will get damaged by it. You should not spray them and you should not put them in a vase. Keep them away from moisture and know that this way they are going to last much longer.
Note that if they become dusty, you should not use a wet cloth to clean them, and instead you should use your hairdryer, set on the cool setting, and you should be extremely gentle and not blow too much air into them.
Steer away from humidity and warmth
You should not put the flowers in a humid or warm place and know that too much water in the air will damage them. This means that you should keep them indoors, and you should not put them in your garden. Make sure they are not exposed to too much heat and keep them away from the kitchen or the bathroom.
Don’t touch them
Lastly, you will need to stop yourself or anyone else in your home from touching the roses. They look beautiful, and you will want to touch and feel them, but you should not do that. On the same note, you should not squeeze them or try to move them around. This is going to damage them and they will lose their beauty.
For additional tips, you can always talk to your florist and you can look for tutorials online. Note that the preserved flowers are made to be looked at, and they should be left alone. Keep them in a cool place, away from sunlight and you will enjoy them for a long time.
