The excellence of our roses is a reflection of the complete and extensive career that our co-founder Pablo has developed over the years, a career dedicated to cultivating only premium quality roses. Thanks to a team of professionals trained to care for each and every stem carefully, a farm full of technological advances and the perfect geography and climate conditions our roses are truly extraordinary.
Gaia Flowers cultivates it´s roses in the outskirts of Bogotá. Since Colombia is located on the equator, there are no seasons allowing ideal sunlight all year-round. Thanks to Bogotá being located as much as 2,630 meters above sea level, roses are grown closer to the sun. This produces longer stems and larger blooms.

We guarantee seven days of fresh flowers. If you are not satisfied with your roses, please contact us within seven days of their arrival.

When you open your Gift Box and take a look at your roses you may have noticed that sometimes some of the outer petals aren´t quite as colorful or attractive as the rest of the flower. These outer petals protect the inner petals of the rose. They are called guard petals.
They are easy to spot and could quite easily be mistaken for wilted or dying petals. The condition of these guard petals is NO reflection of the health or quality of the flower. You will probably notice that these petals have a hint of green or brown.

We leave the guard petals intact to protect the blooms beneath them from the hazards of handling. Our roses lead very active lives between the time we harvest them and they arrive at your door. Our roses are cut, sorted and gathered in bunches. We then rehydrate and feed the stems. The flowers are then refrigerated before the ́re packaged in our Gift Boxes and finally transported to you.
After all that activity, guard petals may appear unattractive but they will have protected your Gaia Flowers.

If the guard petals don´t look terrible or badly damaged, consider leaving them in place. Once the rose opens completely, the guard petals fold back and become almost unnoticeable. In addition to protecting the flower, guard petals guide the rose into shape.
If you don ́t like the way the guard petals look you can easily remove them by pulling them out gently. A rose should have only two to four of them. Don ́t peel away too many of the roses inner petals because the rose will not open properly.

We leave the thorns on your roses because they’re important. You should consider leaving them on too. Every wound on the stem of a rose leads to major vase contamination and deterioration of the stem. It can even lead to bent-neck.
Roses with thorns therefore have longer vase life compared to those which have been removed.

Removing any leaves below the water line, will make your vase look better, but most importantly it will also prevent bacterial growth. Leaves sitting below water will decay and rot, causing bacteria that will cause your flowers to wilt.
