Love these!

These work really well for cuttings with narrower stems. The lids fit nicely and are easy to remove for re-filling.

Large capacity

I use them to bring fresh flowers (a single clipping) to put at my mothers grave and I was looking for a larger size. These are perfect and allow me to stick them in the ground. Thanks!

Floral tubes make it easy

I almost did not order the floral tubes; thought I could use something I already had at home. But, I decided to order the tubes and I'm glad I did; they make it so easy to place milkweed cuttings inside the butterfly screen cage. You can push the tubes into soil (as in the soil of a potted plant), or just prop them up in a small container (like an old coffee cup). Water does not evaporate quickly. I'm hoping that some of these clippings will produce roots while in the floral tube so I can start another milkweed plant once the caterpillars are finished eating.

Floral Tubes

I really like using the tubes for the milkweed. No need to worry about covering any containers. Floral foam works well to hold them.

Keeps milkweed fresh for days!!

We were surprised how long our milkweed clippings stayed fresh in these! In fact, it's been over a week now and we're keeping our fingers crossed it may have taken root inside the tube! That would give us a lot more native milkweed plants which we could really use!!

Love the large floral tubes

I have been using floral tubes for the past 2 years and have found them to be very handy for keeping milkweed fresh and keeping the caterpillars up off the floor of the cage. Also like the snug tube cap which has eliminated any unfortunate "drownings".

Floral tubes

2020/21 was my first season raising Monarch Butterflies and Milkweed. It was such an amazing experience especially raising them from egg to butterfly. I grew them in big glass pickle jars, putting new milkweed in the jars everyday when they were caterpillars because the milkweed would get eaten or wilt very fast. I put netting over the top of the jars with a rubber band to hold it on. Next year I wanted to go to a bigger Monarch breeding space and the tubes will be perfect to hold the milkweed and keep it alive. I'm looking forward to using the tubes. Wish me luck!

I just recently purchased these and have not had the opportunity to use them. However, I am really looking forward to spring so I can use them!!

Too large

Too large to get through the door to outside

Mesh cage

I'm really looking forward to trying this next season.
