SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - When it comes to ordering valentine flowers on line, your options are blooming. But what you see isn't necessarily what you get.

For the past nine days, we set up our cameras to watch three flower arrangements we ordered online from Teleflora, ProFlowers and 1-800-Flowers.

In this Consumer Alert video report, CBS News 8's Marcella Lee tells us just how long you can expect those online bouquets to last.

Some of the footage used in this video report was shot using a GoPro camera.
