Our preserved flowers are eco-friendly. It is possible through sophisticated modern technology that is 100% eco-certified- which means it meets stringent international environmental standards. This innovative flower preservation technique involves a process of dehydration and rehydration. It was developed in Japan. It uses special non-toxic and non-corrosive chemicals to draw out the water content along with proteins, sugar and pigments. The flowers are then fed or infuse with another eco-certified solution (organic mixture made with glycerine and other plant elements) that gives it its shape and texture. The process can also play with smell and colour, by introducing different pigments and essential oils. The whole process takes about one to two weeks. The process also involves high temperature and pressure so only the premium and strongest species of flowers can withstand this treatment. PBF roses are all Ecuadorian roses. These roses are strong and high premium quality because of the unique natural climatic growing conditions in Ecuador: a true thermal shock between day and night (sometimes more than 30°C difference), exceptional luminosity levels (12 hours per day), and very fertile, volcanic earth. These roses are handpicked during their peak and most beautiful stage and preserved immediately. If you would like to learn more, please see “Preservation Process”.

We think it is best to know the difference between Preserved Flowers and Dried Flowers in order to make informed decision when purchasing your flowers.

Dried Flowers achieve a rustic feel and are sold at a lower cost, but it can only last for a few months with high maintenance (it can make a mess and fall apart easily because of its brittleness). Once fully dried, their natural appearance is noticeably damaged, though a colouring process can slightly enhance it. Dried flowers fade quickly in sunlight or extreme heat, hence they have to be kept in cool areas away from windows.

Preserved roses cost a bit more than dried flowers but they last for years with no maintenance; saving precious time, it is so worth it! Long term it is more economical. Another pro is that the fresh appearance and vibrant colours are maintained through high technology rehydration process. Preserved roses are suited for a variety of products and designs and are pollen free.

More Economical: Precious by FloTM roses look identical to fresh flowers but they last way longer allowing you to save money in a long run.
Ecological Impact of Preserved Flowers:
Lower Carbon Footprint: Preserved flowers last long, therefore cutting down on production and transportation of flowers, resulting in lowering CO2 emissions.
Reduce Waste: Preserved flowers do not need to be thrown away frequently so less packaging that will eventually go to the landfill.
Save Water: Preserved flowers do not need to be watered. Overtime you will save liters and liters of water.
Reduce Energy Consumption: Preserved flowers use less energy than fresh flowers in transportation storage as they need less space and no refrigeration.
Reduce Chemicals in the soil: A fresh flower is ready to be cut after 30 to 45 days. It uses a lot of water, fertilizers, pesticides and energy. Their lifespan is about 15 days. A preserved rose lasts for more than a year, reducing the amount of water and chemical products necessary for production of fresh flowers.

When You Receive Your Flower Boxes

There is really no maintenance involved with preserved flowers although it is important to note the Proper Care instruction in order to maximize its lifespan.

There is a slight scent to it. There is a type of filter that have been developed during the preservation process. This filter protects the roses when any perfume is sprayed on it. Despite this, we highly recommend you to NOT spray it with any perfume in order to keep its integrity so they can last their full lifespan.

No. We do not recommend it. They are really happy and comfy in there. They are meant to stay inside the box for the entire lifespan of the arrangement.
