The Dirty Flowers
We refer to this group of flowers as the “dirty” flowers because they pollute the water faster than other flowers and are also more sensitive to pollution. This group dumps organic matter, enzymes, and carbs into the water as they begin to heal the harvest cut. This material triggers a bacterial explosions that begins immediately when flowers come in contact with the water. This is the jump start to short vase-life problems. CVBN tabs prevents and delays the bacteria.
