  1. Cleaning a cask

    Choose a cask that fits with the height of the Calla Lilies Clean it thoroughly. Make sure there aren’t any leftovers from previous flowers.


    Clean a cask is the first step

  2. Filling the cask

    Fill the cask with a little fresh, clean and cold water. Make sure there is just enough water for the stems to touch the water. Too much water will make the stems become slimy very fast.

  3. Add Flower Food

    Make sure to add flower food to the water. Flower food keeps the flowers in a better condition and increases the vase life.

  4. Cut stems if necessary

    Unpack the flowers and cut, if necessary, the stems a little and remove any stems that have become slimy. Do this with a sharp and clean knife.

  5. Storing the Callas

    Place the Calla Lilies in the casks and store them in a cold area. 39 ℉ / 4℃ is preferred, with a maximum of 46 ℉ / 8 ℃. Keep the flowers away from the draft and keep them out of the sunlight. Calla Lilies are also sensitive for ethylene, so keep fruit and vegetables away from your cooler.
