Carefully remove the flowers from the box in the direction of the head of the flower as the pin cushions are fragile.
Protea need a substantial vase, deep and heavy because of the weight of the flowers. After removing the paper from each flower, cut the stems to the desired length, place in a very clean vase (preferably cleaned with Clorox) and add the fertilizer to the water.
Always remove the leaves below the water level, and add fresh clean water every few days.
Changing the Water
Changing the water twice a week and again cutting a little off the stems at each water change will increase the longevity of your Anuhea Flowers.
Drying or Dehydrating Your Flowers
To dry the flowers simply empty the water from the vase and allow the flowers to dehydrate. Or … hang the flowers upside down in a dark, cool, dry location.
