How to Care for Baby’s Breath
Fill your vase with at least 4 inches of water. Add flower preservative if desired. Pull off any foliage below the waterline to avoid decomposition that leads to cloudy and foul-smelling water. Cut the ends underwater on the diagonal to encourage rehydration. Keep them out of direct sunlight. Baby’s breath dries nicely.
Baby’s Breath Meaning
Baby’s breath, or the flowers of the Gypsophila genus, are so named because unlike most plants, they thrive in soil high in gypsum. For their ability to flourish in a difficult environment, they represent everlasting love, whether it be familial, romantic or platonic. They are a symbol of purity, the Christian faith’s Holy Spirit, newborn babies and self-discipline. They are meant to connect long-lost family members and lovers.
Types of Baby’s Breath
There are many types of baby’s breath, but the color white is most popular because it can be dyed. Wild gypsophila comes in several different tints. Pink is great for celebrating births and affection and butter yellow looks lovely in a wedding bouquet.
