Use Soda In Your Flower Arrangements

To make fresh cut flowers last longer, use 1/2 water and 1/2 soda, such as Sprite or any clear color soda. Your flowers will last for weeks and weeks and they will remain beautiful.

Great idea, I suppose the flowers love all that sugar. It would probably work for Christmas trees also.

Yes! ... but the trick is to use Sprite or 7-up WITH sugar, & NOT sugar free pop!

(At least that's what they said in floral design school) Something about the flowers needing the sugar.... They also said that if you didn't have any 7-up or sprite, to just use a teaspoon of sugar in the water... It's the critic acid that's the key ingredient in the lemon-lime soda-pop.

* Also, change the pop or water often, because the bacteria that grows in the water damages the flowers!
