    Default How to keep a rose alive?

    There is a rose which I would really like to preserve alive. Do you know the best way to do so? Thank you, and have a great lovely day!

    Well, theres no way to keep it fresh and the same color and green. Normally if you want to keep flowers, you hang them upside down.

    Yeah, you can't keep it alive forever PJ. It'll die one day. Just dry them like how SS suggested.

    Whatever you do, PJ, don't eat the rose. Being swallowed whole is very bad for plants. They're never the same again afterwards.

    Well, of course I'm jealous: PJ has a rose to eat and I don't.

    This must be, because he likes Princess Fragrance aka Princess Smelly, who likes to eat roses and flowers too.

    most people hang them upside down and dry them, or spray hairspray on them preserve them or both.

    i have a way to keep that rose looking fresh and beautiful for 100yrs. take a picture.
