Alstroemeria Care


Alstroemeria (also known as Peruvian Lily or Inca Lily) is long-lasting, but can dehydrate easily and may look thirsty upon arrival. Let them drink water for about 8-12 hours to perk up. Alstroemeria typically last for 1 to 2 weeks.

  1. Remove the leaves below the water line.
  2. While holding the stem under water, cut 2 to 3 cm off the stems. Do not let the freshly cut stem dry out.
  3. Fill a vase with water and add the flower condition, which came with your bouquet.
  4. If possible leave your flowers in a cool dark room to condition for a few hours after arranging.
  5. Temperature is an important factor in the vase life of these flowers. So display your fresh cut Alstroemeria in a cool area, out of direct sunlight and away from drafts and heat.
  6. Remove spent leaves to keep bouquet looking fresh longer.
  7. Alstroemeria flowers drink a lot of water, so it is important to check the vase is full daily.
