WACO, TX — How do florist flowers hold up against local favorite H-E-B?

25 News is conducting a test to see which Valentine's Day roses will last longer.

Roses cost $50 at a florist shop.

The instructions to keep those roses alive were:

  • Take the roses out of the water every day and snip the stems
  • Keep in a cool, not cold place
  • Do not keep the roses under a vent

The H-E-B roses cost $13.88. The enclosed flower food was added to the water, and the stems were clipped.

Day 3 Update:

Day 10 update:

After 10 days, the $13.88 H-E-B flowers are still holding up!
