• unusual experiment: to stand for longer than roses
How to extend the life of the roses without special tools.
Bouquet of roses - a welcome gift, but sometimes I am sorry to see how beautiful the flowers wither in their eyes. There are different opinions as to prolong their lives. Some say it's all about additives to the water: that aspirin tablet or a spoonful of sugar to help maintain the freshness of buds. Others propose to limit the regular pruning of the stem. Check all of these tips into practice took a prominent Russian video blogger. It turned out, most of the methods do not work in principle, but one allows you to preserve the freshness of flowers over 9 days!
The large-scale experiment with roses.
Video blogger, known on the Internet under the name It`s Maxim, held a large-scale experiment to find out how to extend the life of a bouquet of roses. He prudently examined the various tips that you can find on the subject, and to use all available liquid, in which the Council put the flowers. In particular, he examined what would happen if you put the roses in water with popular domestic "helpers" - soda, aspirin, vinegar solution of potassium permanganate. He also prepared a tank with a variety of drinks - tea, Coca-Cola, Fanta, Sprite and energy. Then he turned and alcohol: vodka, champagne. And for the skeptics who do not believe in the "old wives' advice, Maxim chose floral funds from various price categories. By the way, it was absolutely insane options, for example, to put a rose into the egg mixture. For the purity of the experiment, and it complied.
A solution of potassium permanganate.
The experiment was performed 9 days, during which time most of the expected flowers wilted. The first to give up those plants that are placed in a potassium permanganate, butter and tea. They stood not, and 12 hours, which is, of course, very little.
Coca-cola, champagne and vodka.
Flowers in alcoholic beverages stood there a little longer. Plant response was unusual: the flower was fresh and wilted leaves from those that were in the vodka and champagne. These changes occurred about a day. The most devastating on a rose acted a solution of water and baking soda - the stem and leaves began to turn black quickly.
Flower Reaction to soda.
The longest in this experiment were kept flowers placed in the energy sector, Sprite and floral tools (with the cost of them did not matter, at this stage all acted approximately the same). Rose in the water with aspirin by the fourth day did not survive the test and withered. Note that rose in ordinary water, which trimmed daily, also not distinguished durability. This method does not give very good results.
Sprite, Coca-Cola, Fanta: a means to help the flower survive longer?
Finally, on the ninth day of sincere surprise experimenter with almost equal efficiency they have shown themselves floral means and ... sprite! The most common drink was as gracious to flower as a special solution. Although this is not the most interesting.
Rose, which remains fresh 9 days later.
Much better than all the other flowers, looked like the rose that was placed in ordinary water, but the amount of water in the vase veil slightly bud. The conclusion was clear: if you want to keep the freshness of flowers is really a long time, the flowers as long as possible to keep submerged. In this case, they will not lose their beauty even 9 days later.
