Homemade Floral Food

How to Make Your Own Food For Flowers

There are 3 ingredients that are helpful when trying to keep your flowers fresh and long-lasting. They are:

  • Sugar – provides nutrition for flowers
  • Citric acid – acts as an acidifier and lowers the ph level of the water
  • Bleach – prevents bacteria growth in the vase

Here are a few do-it-yourself options that I have come across:

  • One part lemon lime soda (7-Up, Sprite) to 3 parts of water
  • Two tablespoons lemon juice, one tablespoon sugar, one quarter teaspoon bleach to one quart of water
  • Two tablespoons of white vinegar and two tablespoons of sugar to one quart of water
