Grower Recommendations: 

  • Treat Asiatic Lilies with Floralife® EthylBloc right after harvest to help prevent ethylene damage. 

Hydration after Harvest: 

  • Use Floralife® PAL and treat for minimum 2 hours (1 tablet for 2 L) 
  • Re-cut the stems (about 1-2 inches) before placing in hydration solution. 
  • Remove any leaves that might be below the hydration solution. 

Shipping and Storage: 

  • Asiatic Lilies should be shipped and stored at 36-38°F (less than 3 days) or 32-34°F (more than three days). 

Re-Hydration at Store Level and Storage (holding) 

  • Re-cut the stems and hydrate using a hydration solution such as Floralife® Hydraflor 100 for 1-2 hours (outside of cooler) or 4-12 hours (inside the cooler). 
  • After hydration, place flowers in a holding flower food treatment such as Floralife® Clear 200 and store in cooler at 36-38°F. 

Vase Care: 

  • Re-cut stems (1-2 inches) and place in a flower food vase solution such as Floralife® Bulb Food 300. 
  • Remove any leaves that might be below the vase solution. 
  • Use a finishing spray such as Floralife® Finishing Touch® to ensure the flowers freshness. 

Special Care Recommendation: 

  • Removal of the stamen can prevent stains from the pollen but the removal can shorten the vase life. 
  • Vase life can vary greatly depending on the cultivar
