Chapter 2: Water Tube & Flower Pick

It is essential to use water picks when designing without foam. Water picks (or water tubes) hold water to keep the flowers hydrated. This technique is popular in amateur as well as foam-free designs. Also, it is beneficial when you want to elongate the stems of flowers. We use water picks when fresh and permanent botanicals are part of the composition in an arrangement. The water pick is inserted into the Styrofoam to keep the fresh flower hydrated.
