Water Quality

Not all water is the same! Water composition can vary from one source to another, from city to city, county to county, country to country. Having your water at optimum performance levels for fresh-cut flowers is critical and can be managed. 

There are three main characteristics that affect flowers in your water. 

PH Level 
A pH measurement represents the condition of the water in relation to the alkalinity/acidity of water. The addition of OASIS® floral nutrient to your water helps to adjust and balance the water to a pH level most favourable for fresh cut flowers. For the majority of flowers, the optimum pH level is 3.5 to 4.0. 

Water Hardness 
Water hardness reflects the amount of calcium and magnesium salts dissolved in your water. For example, well water can have high calcium levels due to limestone deposits, which can harm flowers. And water processed through a water softening system can be detrimental to cut flowers because of the addition of salts during the process. 

Total Dissolved Solids - TDS 
TDS is a measurement of all mineral elements found in your water, including iron, potassium, sodium, magnesium, chlorides and sulphate. Water with high TDS can negatively impact cut flower life. A filtration system can reduce the content of TDS.
