According to another, dried flowers made from wildflowers and herbs are often used as amulets.

So there is no single point of view on wilted bouquets in the house. Read about different interpretations of superstitions in the OBOZREVATEL article.

Negative version

Wilted plants are believed to bring nothing good to the house. Our great-grandmothers believed that if flowers lost their beauty, their owner could also lose their vitality.

Unmarried girls were advised not to keep dried bouquets from suitors - dried flowers have a negative impact on youth and strength.

A logical explanation can be found in relation to the item "deteriorating health". It's simple: if wilted flowers are left in water for a long time, they will start to rot. The growth of bacteria can have a negative impact on health.

By the way, it was not advised to store a wedding bouquet of roses - it is believed to cause quarrels and misunderstandings in the lives of newlyweds.
