Thank you for the great question.
Flowers can die for many different reasons. For
instance, they can die because they did not get
enough water or sunlight. Sometimes they can die
from getting too much water as well! Some flowers
grow, live, and die on a yearly schedule.
When a flower dies, the petals will become dry and
brittle, and will shrink. Then the petals may fall
off of the bulb, the center part of the flower.
Bacteria then use the dead petals as food,
and the petals then decompose and get added to
the soil and dirt around the plant. This
provides nutrients for the plant and its future
