Upon arrival at destination, the spikes should be immediately taken out of the cardboard
boxes. About2.5 cm long basal ends of the spikes should be cut off and the spikes placed
in acid solution having pH between 3-3.5 to increase the shelf life. Spikes can also be
kept in floral preservatives containing sucrose (3000-5000ppm) and Streptocycline. Spikes
should be opened at a moderate temperature of 21-23° C, in diffused light but not in the
open sun. It is advisable to store the spikes in air-conditioned chambers for sale.
Vase-life of gladiolus spikes varies from 5-10 days, depending upon the cultivar and room
temperature.

Gladiolus are used as line flowers in arrangements when tall blooms with a linear shape are needed.
Glads have a vase life of one to two weeks, depending on how fresh they are when you buy them. Those harvested from your cutting garden can last two weeks if you condition them properly.
