General Floral Greens Care: Keep the water in the vase of your Leucadendron Safari Sunset fresh. Replace the water every 3rd day with cold water keeping the water level near the top of the vase. Re-cut 1/2" from the base of each Leucadendron stem under water using a sharp knife with each water change. Remove any foliage that may become submerged after re-cutting.

Variety note: "Safari Sunset" is a hybrid Leucadendron bred from plants native to the sea plains and mountains of South Africa. This long lasting exotic green will add color and appeal to any flower arrangement. Because of its earth tone coloration "Safari Sunset" is especially useful with fall arrangements. The plant is most colorful when harvested at a young stage. Older plants tend to produce yellowish-green foliage. Leucadendron Safari Sunset is usually sold in 5 stem bunches.

Add a commercial floral preservative such as AquaPlus or FloraLife to the vase that contains your Leucadendron Safari Sunset with each water change. Floral preservative helps to prevent bacterial growth and helps nourish your Leucadendron 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.
