Quality Oasis Products
My personal favorite is Oasis. It imitates the actual cell structure of a flower stem and is engineered to draw water up to a flower head the same way the actual stem does. It is important to use the proper flower food and other nutrients to increase the life span of your flower arrangement.
When using Oasis be sure to allow it to float in the water bucket and absorb the water until it sinks. Forcing the foam down into the water can create air pockets that stay dry inside. Of course - if a flower stem is stuck into this dry pocket, it will die because it can't uptake water.
