- The temperature of the conditioning water for the Daffodils should be cool and not warm.
- Use professional flower food for the best results and cut the stems at least ½ inch before placing them in the vase with cool water.
- Let the Daffodils have a drink for at least one night before putting them in the vase with the Tulips.
- Note that you do not re-cut the stems after you have conditioned them, otherwise, the mucus will leak and the other flowers in the vase will die.
