Solution Uptake and Vase Longevity of Rose Varieties with Express Technology

It was observed that roses placed in Floralife® Express Clear 200 solution with the uncut stem ends, took up solution at the same rate or better than the volume of solution uptake with the stem ends cut. In 5 out of 6 rose varieties tested, it was observed that the Floralife® Express Clear 200 product gave better flower longevity than the Floralife® Clear 200 regardless of whether the stem ends were cut or uncut.
