How To Use OshunPouch®

1. Prepare the Pouch: Using a small tool such as a skewer or toothpick, puncture small holes evenly throughout both sides of the OshunPouch®. Aim for approximately 10-12 holes per side to ensure proper hydration.

2. Hydrate the Pouch: Fill a container with water and submerge the pouch completely for 5-7 minutes, allowing it to fully hydrate. This step ensures that the pouch is ready to provide optimal support and hydration to your flowers and stems.

3. Arrange Your Flowers: Once fully hydrated, the OshunPouch® is ready to use. Insert your flowers and stems securely into the pouch, arranging them as desired.

4. Keep Hydrated: To maintain the freshness and longevity of your floral arrangement, it's essential to keep the OshunPouch® hydrated. Check the water level regularly and replenish as needed to ensure the best results.

OshunPouch® is best suited for day-of arrangements, providing ample support and hydration for your blooms. However, we recommend testing it with your specific flower materials and display conditions beforehand to ensure optimal performance.

Does OshunPouch® drip and/or stain surfaces?
