Caring for Cluster Roses

In case you haven’t already heard, NetFlorist has recently introduced some gorgeous and unique Kenyan cluster roses to their offerings. These cluster roses, as the name suggests, are known for their unique formation of clusters of petite roses on each truss, giving them their unique appearance. They also have the most beautiful natural hybrid colouring which is due to them being grown at the foot of Mount Kenya.

In this post, let’s have a look at some tips on how you can take care of your cluster roses so that they stay in tip-top shape for as long as possible:

Cut those stems:

Firstly, it is important to cut the stems of your cluster roses short. The reason for this, is that the pores of these plants need to open and the longer the stem, the harder it is for this to happen. By cutting the stems short, you are allowing water to reach the buds quicker so that your roses bloom and stay alive.

Flower food:

Just like us humans, roses need their nutrients to stay alive, which is why we include flower food with all our flower gifts. Remember to use the flower food provided and let those short stems suck it up!

Keep in a cool place:

Just like with most flowers, you need to keep your cluster roses in a cool area, away from direct sunlight. Remember, cluster roses are fairly sensitive as they contain delicate buds which may be sensitive to weather conditions.

Final tips:

All in all, cluster roses need a lot of care, as each truss contains multiple petite roses so a lot more energy is needed to keep them alive. Longevity varies, but the more you take care of these roses, the longer they will last. Don’t forget to log onto NetFlorist to see our range of Kenyan cluster roses and other amazing flower arrangements. No matter what the occasion, we have the perfect flower gift for you!
