How long can flowers stay submerged in water? Flowers love water. In fact, if you take them out of the water at the end of the night, they’ll be as perky as ever. I’ve done tests in my studio and I’ve had submerged arrangements last up to four days. The water will go bad before the flowers do.
How do you make a submerged flower? Just hook your favorite flowers together in a customs arrangement or go with a single flower. Get a single rose, then tie the custom weights with them like a cluster of gems or the custom metallic materials like the heavy waster to make the flowers submerged in the water!
How do you keep flowers fresh longer in water? Bleach. Freshly cut flowers will last longer if you add 1/4 teaspoon bleach per quart (1 liter) of vase water. Another popular recipe calls for 3 drops bleach and 1 teaspoon sugar in 1 quart (1 liter) water. This will also keep the water from getting cloudy and inhibit the growth of bacteria.
