The Baltimore Flower Market proudly offers bulk pincushion protea.
These unusual yet stunning flower will add a touch of the exotic to your event.
They get their name after the bloom because it looks like a pincushion stuck full of pins and is perched atop a tall, leafy stem.
PINCUSHION CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
Our pincushion protea are flown in directly from the farm. For transportation purposes, their heads arrive packaged in clear paper. Because of the clear paper, your protea will appear thirsty and wilted. This is absolutely NORMAL. Follow these steps listed below to fully hydrate them to look their best.
- When you take your flowers home, be sure they are in at least 4 inches of fresh water and leave them 4 to 8 hours while the stems hydrate.
- Remove the clear sleeve after the 4 to 8 hours and remove foliage to prevent the growth of mold or bacteria which could cause premature wilting.
- Cut stems diagonally under water using clean, sharp flower shears or scissors. Cut approximately 1 inch from the bottom of the stem.
- Ensure that you have sufficient room in each container for the amount of stems you will be storing. Overcrowding may cause damage to flowers and effect proper blooming.
- Allow the protea time to hydrate well. It can take up to 8 to 12 hours to properly hydrate. If you see that some flowers are still drooping after 3-4 hours, it is possible an air bubble has formed in the stem. Re-cut following the above directions.
- Keep the protea in a cool, dark location away from direct sunlight, drafts, or extreme temperatures and heat.
- To keep your protea fresh, change the water if it becomes cloudy. Ensure that your pincushion protea has sufficient water at all times. The water level will become lower and lower as your flowers drink.
*If upon first inspection, you foresee a problem with your flowers, do not proceed processing your order. Leave the flowers intact and call us immediately.
