Another indoor plant issue that occured the other day was a major hydrangea wilt. I splurged and purchased the hydrangeas pictured above and low and behold a few hours after I arranged them they wilted. So, after a quick google search and suggestions from some fellow blogger friends, I learned the following tips:
1. After a fresh cut, dip the cut ends into boiling water for 30 seconds and then place into room temp water.
2. After a fresh cut, hold the cut end to a flame (I used a burner on my cooktop) for a few seconds and then place into room temp water. (this one seemed to really work for me)
3. Drop a few ice cubes into water to shock the blooms.
4. After treating the cut ends, mist the blooms with water or lay a wet paper towel on top until blooms come back to life.
I tried all of the treatments above and am happy to say that they worked! My hydrangea bounced right back. It took a few hours, but they look great now!
