Step-by-Step Instructions on How to Care for Rose in Water Globe

Having a glass globe to place flowers requires a lot of care and cleaning to maintain its beauty and keep the rose clean. These step-by-step instructions will help you learn how to care for a rose in a water globe.

Step 1: Take Out the Rose from the Globe

Gently lift the glass dome of your glass globe and take out the rose from the globe. Be very careful and gentle during this process as the globe’s glass is fragile and can be broken easily. Avoid hitting or banging the glass globe anywhere.

Now carefully remove the rose from the dome and place it in the sink filled with ice-cold water. Wash your flowers gently with your fingers to rub off debris and dust. You can also use a soft-bristled brush to clean the stems and leaves. Do not rub too harshly so as not to damage the flower.

Use a mild soap to clean the stems and leaves gently. Work the lather with your fingers and wash it off thoroughly. Make sure there is no residue of soap left behind.

Step 2: Drain and Replace the Water

Now that your flower is clean, it is time to change the water. Since the flower is kept in the water, it is very important to keep the water fresh and clean. Drain all the water from your sink first. Now take the glass globe and drain its water. After emptying the globe, clean the glass with a sponge and some soap.

Once the glass globe is cleaned, rinse it thoroughly with water to clean off the soap. Now fill up your glass globe with fresh water before placing the flowers back inside.

Step 3: Rinse Thoroughly

It is very important to get rid of all the soap from the globe and the flowers. To ensure that everything is clean and safe, rinse the flower and the globe thoroughly two to three times. Rinsing them multiple times will ensure that all the soap residue is washed off properly. It will prevent the rose from rotting when dried again and placed back inside the glass globe.

Step 4: Dry the Rose

After you have cleaned and rinsed your flowers and globe properly, it is time to let the flower air dry to get rid of excess water from the rose. The water on the rose can cause mold and mildew. Place your flower on paper towels and let it air dry to prevent that. Do not place the flower in heat or sun.

Just put the roses in a well-aerated room, and it will take about 48 hours for the rose to dry fully. Once the rose is cleaned up and dried, it is ready to be placed back in the glass globe. The time it takes to dry the flower may vary depending upon the climate and humidity of your region.

Important Tip: Remember you are only drying off the excess water after cleaning the roses, not crisp drying them. So, avoid using heat to prevent wilting.

Additional Tips on How to Care for Rose in Water Globe

Here are some bonus helpful tips on caring for a rose in water globe and keeping it healthy and clean.

  1. Take the rose out of the globe to clean it. Avoid cleaning inside the globe as it might be difficult to wash it off, and the soap residue may not clean up properly.
  2. Dry the rose gently for a few hours or a day before placing it back inside the glass globe. Putting the wet rose may cause it to form mildew or mold.
  3. Check your rose every once in a while, to check for any signs of molding. If you see any mold or mildew forming, you need to clean the globe and the flower and replace the water inside. If the mold has spread all over the flower, you will need to replace it. You can cut another flower and place it inside the globe.
  4. If you keep the rose for a longer period, regularly check it for any water damage such as rotting or black spots.
  5. To keep your plant healthy for a long time, prune it regularly.

My husband gave me a Lavender Rose Globe. After a month the liquid inside started turning orange. Any guess why???

I can't say for sure why the liquid inside your Lavender Rose Globe is changing color.

It could be due to the color of the flowers or other materials inside the globe bleeding into the liquid. It’s also possible that the liquid inside the Lavender Rose Globe is reacting with the rose petals causing them to change color. Some types of liquid-filled decorative items, like snow globes or water globes, can change color or become cloudy over time due to exposure to sunlight or air.

You can contact the manufacturer or retailer from where you purchased the item. They might be able to provide you with more information on why this is happening and how to fix it.

Best wishes.
