Flower and pH
I wanted to know the affects of PH levels in water that
might affect flowers. Can a flower live longer if I have the means to
control the PH levels in my water?
If the water is slightly acidic, then cut flowers placed in it should stay
fresh longer, because the pH might be more closely like that of the cell
sap within the stem.
