Many people are new to Pampas, and we get many questions about taking care of these babies!
Pampas and dried grass have been a super huge hit for home decor and events. It is considered the number one trending item for weddings these past few years. What makes these pieces so appealing is that they don’t require much care.
For our customers who tend to forget to water their plants, these pieces are ideal for you. Pampas and Dried grass will last up to two years and sometimes even longer. Here are a few tips so that you can prolong the lifespan of your items.
We recommend keeping your pieces out of direct sunlight. Environments with a lot of humidity or dried heat are not good for these pieces. We recommend keeping them in a place that is neither damp nor dry. When receiving our larger pampas and some of our smaller dried grass, such as bunny tails, we recommend lightly hair drying them. This will help puff the plumes up. They may appear flat from being in transit, and this trick will certainly help. They also will puff up naturally once you have placed them in a vase and let the air circulate them. For most of our pieces, we keep the stems longer so that you can cut the pieces to the vase of your choice.
We recommend taking your time cutting the stems. We like to use garden shears or sharp scissors. We cut them inch by inch and place them in the vase until we find the desired height. A very common question we get here at Luxe B is, “should I hair spray my pampas?”
We do see many videos of people recommending to do this, but at Luxe B Pampas Grass, we only hairspray our items if we notice over time that the items are shedding. Hair spray can take the softness away from the plumes, so we only recommend using hair spray if you truly need to. We love how these pieces add a beautiful natural element to your space, and we look forward to seeing how you style our pieces! If you have any questions, please reach out to our Luxe B Care team at:
