Acacia Greenery Conditioning
Foliage Care & Conditioning:
Acacia greenery can be a good substitute for baby eucalyptus. Handle the stems with care because they do have little thorns. Acacia foliage is a good filler green. It works well to fill in the gaps in sympathy arrangements and for edging tribute displays. It does last well in floral foam but can be a little messy looking so it isn’t recommended for modern arrangements or more linear designs. The stems are also fairly stiff so we recommend using them to add softness in traditional designs but not for informal wedding arrangements.
- Cut the acacia foliage stems at a sharp angle with secateurs. This allows water to be absorbed more efficiently.
- Thick stems/branches can also be cut up the middle of the stem to aid water absorption efficiency.
- The ideal temperature range is 36-41 degrees Fahrenheit
- Clean up any leaves or flowers that might sit in the water to avoid bacteria build up.
- Stand the stems in shallow water but check levels regularly and refill as needed.
- Be sure to keep away from draughts.
