Vase Life Study results of Roses, Alstroemeria, and Chrysanthemum using FloraLife Flower Food

In 2022, the cut flower market was worth 36.4 billion USD. Roses, alstroemeria, and chrysanthemums were among the top 10 most popular cut flowers. Many factors contribute to a flower’s vase life, including variety, growing conditions, and postharvest treatments. With this high-value market, attention to the controllable postharvest treatment is crucial. Flower food is the last stage of cut flower care, and studies show flower food encourages proper flower opening and coloration with extended vase life through hydration and nutrition.

These experiments were conducted to observe the effect that FloraLife® Flower Food had on the vase life of roses, alstroemeria, and chrysanthemum flower crops. The data presented was averaged over 10 experiments.

On average, FloraLife Flower Food increased the vase life of roses by 90%, the vase life of alstroemeria by 18%, and the vase life of chrysanthemums by 58%. This research confirms that FloraLife Flower Food can extend the life of cut flowers.
