Caring for Acacia Mimosa
For purchasing, it is recommended to buy branches when the blossoms are 'fuzzy' and brightly coloured. Avoid purchasing if the blossoms have brown spots.
For conditioning, it is advised to trim the stems leaving the plastic wrapping on to create it's own micro-climate. Stand in fresh, clean water and condition thoroughly before use. Hydrate in a solution of water and commercial floral preservative before storage or usage. Condition away from direct heat sources, draughts and do not overcrowd the containers.
