Momoko shares her opinion about the bouquet keeper, an ikebana accessory made of pure tin.
From my personal experience, when it comes to products that keep flowers as long as possible, I only knew about those that inject a liquid into the water. However, as the water degrades over the days, I don't use them often.
This bouquet keeper is made of tin, a material that has antibacterial properties. It is elegantly decorated with roses embedded in the material. This tool is easy to wrap around the stems of the bouquet. The plate is thin and malleable. Whether it's for a bouquet you just bought at the flower shop or a gift, it’s a useful item for people who have no knowledge of floral art like me. You just need to adjust it to the bouquet and place the flowers in the vase.
I've been using this accessory for a week now, the water doesn't smell, and the flowers are still beautiful. Usually, after this time, the flowers start to lose their vitality and the petals fall off. I am satisfied with this bouquet keeper that can be used over and over again. Moreover, it does not contain chemicals, and it is environmentally friendly and budget-friendly.
Why not use this accessory for flowers received as offerings during the Higan vacation (Buddhist vacation in Japan celebrated at the spring and autumn equinox)?
The bouquet keeper is a practical way to preserve flowers, especially when it is tricky to change the water in your vase. They help to preserve your flowers and keep them presentable.Tin is a malleable metal that will last for many years if not abused and damaged. It does not rust and will last for many years.
Thanks to Momoko for sharing!
