@Stephenbolt,
Place a copper coin in the vase, and keep topping up the water as necessary.

@roger,
I've just checked the exchange rate and note that you may need 2.32 coins.

Do you have a hacksaw?

@Lordyaswas,
And/or add an aspirin tablet (after changing water). I'd give a link but the one I read sent me two pop ups. There are plenty of websites that mention aspirin though, and at least one that says both aspirin and a copper coin.

@Stephenbolt,
How about dunking the flowers in liquid nitrogen?

@Lordyaswas,
Heh, I killed snails with dilute ammonia, evil queen that I am. (No snails on the scene here in Abq yet.)

That's a great article, very heartening, Lordytwoshoes.
