If you need your glads to open faster place them in very hot water with preservative. A preservative that has lots of sugar like a rose pro. Place them in a warm environment and you can also place a garbage bag over them so the warmth of the hot water creates a greenhouse in the garbage bag. You can also cut a slit on the outside calxyes of the bloom, you have to be very careful not to cut the bloom but this will help as well. Good Luck!!!
