If you follow these simple steps then your flowers should last 5-7 days:
Keep an eye on the temperature
If it's too hot or too cold in the spot you've placed your cut flowers, they will wilt much more quickly. Move them to a good, temperature neutral spot. Don't place your flowers under a heating vent on in direct sunlight.
Change the water regularly
If you don't have time for any of the other steps then this is the most IMPORTANT step. One of the things that causes cut flowers to wilt so quickly is bacteria in the water. The most basic thing you can do to preserve cut flowers is to change the water once a day. Use cold water. If the vase is too heavy to lift then make sure to keep the water topped-up.
Take care of the stems
The most basic way to treat the stems is to trim the ends a small amount each day when you change the water. Cut them at a 45° angle with a sharp pair of scissors so that you don't crush the stems.
Remove excess leaves
Remove leaves, flowers, or branches which would fall below the water line. Leaving these in the water encourages bacteria growth.
