If you don’t know yet, a ripe fruit emits an invisible fuel and fragrant called ethylene. This gas is dangerous to flowers and plants but cannot harm humans. The idea behind this fact is that flowers are the heralds of fruits in the world of plants. As soon as a flower pollinates, it turns into a fruit, produces seeds and becomes a plant. Ethylene is considered as the gaseous material in a fruit which is responsible for why petals fall. Having said that, you must be mindful where you’ll place your flowers. Make sure that there are no ripe fruits in the area to ensure that your flowers will bloom beautifully.
