If the temperature gets warm during CNY, you shall select semi-open flower buds to prevent premature flowering. If the temperature tends to become cool, take fully blooming ones instead. Check the flowers from crown to root and avoid those with brown patches on their petals or significantly yellowed leaves. Flowers with thin petals require sufficient water and flowers with hollow stems should be placed in high bottle to prevent bending.
