General care tips (for all cut flowers):

- After purchasing cut the stems with a sharp knife and put the stems directly into water.
- Make sure that no leaves are in the water, this will make the water dirty.
- Make sure the vase is very clean to prevent algae growth, particularly so for vases made by transparant glass. Always clean the vase with bleach or detergent.

Care tips for Clematis:

- Add cut flower food attached to the water, recommended is Chrysal CLEAR CUT UNIVERSAL FOOD, other types of cut flower food can have a negative effect on Clematis.
- Place the vase as light as possible but not in direct sunlight.
- Clematis last best in a cool place. If the vase will be placed in a warm room, put the vase 24 hours in a cool place first.

Life span:

- The average life span is around 10-12 days. In a warm or dark environment, the life span will be shorter, in a cool and light room the flowering stems can last up to 3 weeks.

Typical Clematis:

- Clematis cut flower has the possibility that the flowers and flower buds will turn upright again when the branch is used horizonatlly. Most flowers can not do that.


- General wilting: incorrect cut flower food. Chance the water and put Chrysal CLEAR in the water and cut the stems again with a sharp knife.
- Flowers wilt: Cause, probably dirty water and / or a dirty vase. Clean the vase with bleach and cut the branches again.
- Flower buds do not open: Cause, the vase is probably in a too warm room. Cut the stems again and put the vase in a cool place so that the stems can absorb water first.
