Generally only the blooms of these flowers are sold, and usually they are used for Wedding work. They are sold in boxes of 25 blooms, and should be stored, as is in the cooler. Before placing in the cooler, check the blooms, especially for a black mold that will occasionally be encountered starting in the corners of the flowers. This will only spread if left unattended. You may try washing them with a very mild soapy solution which will resolve the problem about 50% of the time. Otherwise you will need to notify the supplier immediately.
