Juice for cut flowers

I found this recipe in the happyslob newsletter:

For Cut Flowers - 1 tablespoon of Epsom Salts, plus 1 tablespoon of bleach and 1 1/2 cups of lemon lime soda is apparently a great mixture for keeping fresh cut flowers alive! (I guess they like drinking soda too, huh?) Just remember to trim the stems often.

Is that for a gallon mixture?

They didn't mention adding water. I have used just the lemon-lime soda alone and it worked great.
