Graded spikes should not be stored for more than 24 hours before they are packed and transported. These should be kept at a minimum temperature of 4-8° C in upright position until packed for transportation. To prevent desiccation before and after grading, the spikes can also be kept in floral preservatives.

Spikes are stored in refrigerated van for transporting them to long distance. Refrigerated storage increases the shelf life of the flowers without any addition to the spike weight.
