Cut the Part of Flowers that Change
Every day, you need to always pay attention to your bouquet. If you know that there are some changes in several parts (such as the leaves, stalk, stem, thorn, etc), it means that you have to cut or pick it.
After you pick or cut those parts, you have to put the bouquet again in a vase which has been already filled with water. Please make sure that you change the water every day. There is an interesting tip about that water.
