Care of Lisianthus
Follow the tips of master grower Anton from Lisianthus Nursery Floralis and you can enjoy your beautiful bunch of lisianthus for up to 2 weeks!
What should you look out for when buying?
A fresh bunch of lisianthus has 2 to 3 open flowers and attractive green foliage. Ask the florist whether they package them well to protect against cold/heat and damage, and whether they add flower food. At home, put them into clean water as quickly as possible.
A suitable clean (glass) vase.
Use a suitable clean vase (preferably glass) and fill it with water and a sachet of flower food.
Place into the vase.
Cut off the bottom of the stems at an angle and remove the lowest leaves from the stem before putting them in the vase. It is important for there not to be any leaves submerged in the water. Put the vase in a nice spot, out of direct sunlight and also somewhere free of draughts. Lisianthus do not tolerate such conditions.
Lisianthus is a thirsty flower, so make sure that there is sufficient water in the vase. The best thing to do is to top up with water and flower food.

You can put the lisianthus almost anywhere as long as it is not in direct sunlight or in a draught.
Refill the vase regularly with clean water and add the cut flower food to this. Simply remove any flowers that no longer look nice.
Yes, you can! Always make sure that there is no foliage in the water, the water is clean and includes the cut flower food.
The vase life can be 14 days, provided the flowers are fresh and the care tips have been followed properly. Use of flower food is very important for vase life.
