Do Not Mix Daffodils with Other Cut Flowers

I heard you should not mix daffodils with other cut flowers.  Is this true?

Yes.  Cut daffodils exude a slimy substance into the water.  This plugs the cut end of other flowers preventing them from absorbing water.  Avoid the problem by displaying your daffodils in a vase of their own.
