The GUPPY comes in ONLY one size - 4.25 in / 10.2 cm in diameter. Many new users are surprised at how few stems it can hold and equally surprised at how many it can hold. With repeated use, you will discover its capabilities.
At minimum it can fit a 2-3" opening using half a GUPPY- rolled like a crepe or as wide as a 10" vase opening. It is really the 'stems canopy' resting in the lip of the vase opening.
To arrange 'Grand Hotel/Wedding' size diplays we have an EXCLUSIVE GUPPY POD system. A video is in the Demonstration Page. The POD system technique and the GUPPYS ability to fit ' watertubes' allows even more daring designs and installations. One size is all you need!
The instruction card included in your package shows the 2 methods to connect the 'male tab' into the 'female slot'.
Soak or run the tabs and slots under the sink tap in warm water or heat from hair dryer- until the tabs are very soft-try inserting again.
If you are still having problems 'THINK of the male tab as a 'fishing hook' that you are 'inserting" itn a fishing hook motion. (Or a jewelry clasp motion). Repeat until all the 8 connections are completed. Once done use cold water to harden the plastic or allow to cool at room temperature for 3 minutes- this is to 'secure' each joint.
*If you are still having problems we have a lengthy step-by-step video on our FloraGUPPY YOUTUBE channel, search 'ASSEMBLY'
