Homemade cut flower food.

Recipe 1:
{Lemon, sugar, bleach}
2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
1 Tablespoon of sugar
1/2 tsp household bleach
Pour into a quart of water.
The lemon juice will lower the pH, the sugar will give your cut flowers nourishment, and the bleach will help to prevent bacteria from growing.

Recipe 2:
{Apple Cider Vinegar & Sugar}
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1 tsp sugar

Add to one quart of water.
The vinegar kills the bacteria and fungi so your flowers will thrive. Sugar feeds.

Recipe 3:
Lemon Lime Soda

One part Lemon-Lime Soda {Do not use Diet or other flavored sodas} to 3 parts water.

The soda has the acid and sugar the flowers need to survive.

Happy Blooms!
