General Floral Greens Care: Keep the water in the vase of your Tree Fern fresh. Replace the water every 3 days with cold water keeping the water level near the top of the vase. Re-cut 1/2" from the base of each Tree Fern stem under water using a sharp knife with each water change. 

Variety note: Tree Fern is available year round in bunches of 10 stems.  This fine textured, lacy filler is great for small or oriental style arrangements. Be sure to remove any foliage that will be below the water line as the tiny leaves of Tree Fern could decompose and introduce bacteria into the vase water. Tree Fern is actually related to the Asparagus spears that we eat.

Add a commercial floral preservative such as AquaPlus or FloraLife to the vase that contains your Tree Fern with each water change. Floral preservative helps to prevent bacteria growth and feeds your cut floral greens insuring a longer vase life. To make your own cut flower food mix 1/2 teaspoon of table sugar to a quart of cold water... mixing thoroughly.
