Floral Arrangements/Oasis foam fell apart

Oasis needs to be allowed to absorb water slowly, and it usually takes at least an hour or more. I put conditioning powder in the water and leave the oasis overnight.  You must not push the oasis into the water in an attempt to get it to absorb the water more quickly.  

Probably her oasis was not completely engorged with water, and disintigrated

I welcome questions concerning flower selection and identification, mechanics of arranging, style and color trends from contemporary to period pieces, and current techniques used in the floral industry. I can also direct you to resources for flowers and supplies not readily available in some areas.


I've been a floral designer for over 20 years in the Los Angeles area. The entertainment industry here keeps us very busy, and has also provided me with very unique opportunities to create pieces for various eras and locals. I am experienced in wedding and event work as well as individual pieces for all occasions

This is very much an on-the-job training type profession, but I have found my background in interior design, particularly art history, has been something I've drawn from many times over the years.
