A blowout for your blooms
Sometimes you just need those roses open right now – perhaps for party work or when shooting photos for your shop.
You can help speed up Mother Nature by blowing into the blooms to force the petals to open wider. Slowly and carefully spreading the petals of roses and carnations wider with your hands can be effective, too.
Try these techniques out some slow afternoon before using them in a high-pressure situation to be sure they work for you. And keep in mind that opening flowers faster than natural will generally reduce vase life, so this technique works best when the flowers are being displayed just for a short time.
Have these roses at room temperature this is important when trying to reflex & open them.
