What do people say about preserving wilted bouquets

Many signs and superstitions have long been associated with dried flowers. According to one version, wilted bouquets should not be kept at home, as they can negatively affect the energy of the house and cause a deterioration in the health of family members. 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 the superstition in the OBOZREVATEL article.

The Negative Version

Wilted plants are believed to bring nothing good to the house. Our great-grandmothers believed that when flowers lose their beauty, their owner can also lose vitality. Superstitious people say that you shouldn't keep wilted bouquets because they can attract bad luck, and cause health problems, and difficulties in the family.

Unmarried girls were advised not to keep dried bouquets from suitors, as dried flowers negatively affect youth and strength.

A logical explanation can be found for 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 negatively affect health.
