My team and I have been getting many questions about pampas lately, and I thought it was time to clarify some of those frequently asked questions. Here’s the scoop on this current number one wedding trending product:
How long do pampas last? Ideally, it lasts up to 2 years.
What are the best ways to prolong its life span? Dusting is key! I suggest taking it outside and shaking it gently to get rid of accumulated dust. Keep the pieces away from direct sunlight and avoid areas in your home with a lot of moisture or heat. Never put it next to a fireplace that you use or a heater/ air conditioning unit.
Should you water pampas? No folks, no need! It’s dried grass and doesn’t require water! Which makes this plant ideal for those people who tend to forget to water their plant babies!
Does hairspray help with shedding? Ideally, you don’t need to as it is treated after being harvested; however, if you notice after the 6-12 months that it does start to shed some of its plumes, you can lightly spray with hairspray or a floral protectant spray to maintain the plumes.
Where does pampas grass originate from? Pampas grass is native to South America. You can find it primarily in Argentina and some other South American countries. Pampas is named after a region in Argentina. This region of Argentina is considered to be one of the most fertile landmasses in the world; however that being said, most of our pampas are sourced worldwide from California, South America, and parts of Asia.
What’s the best way to avoid shedding the plumes? Our farmers do treat the crop after they harvest them. You are bound to lose some volume, but they should stay full and beautiful if you keep them in a nice environment. The environment that we tend not to style them is close to a window or in direct sunlight as it will affect the product and make it dry.
How tall is Pampas Grass? Pampas Grass has many variations of different plumes. Some pampas are really fluffy, while others are really feathery. Pampas can grow up to 15 feet tall. Here is the largest variation that we ship out the most (Type 6 natural ). Our tallest styles of pampas that we ship out are just under 4 feet tall. If you click the item details on each item on our website, we do list the dimensions.
Is Pampas grass naturally white? Some pampas have white tones, but naturally, pampas are nude, beige, dark brown, or even grey. Type 1 and Type 2 naturally are gray, so our pampas that are white or close to white are bleached to achieve that wedding look brides & grooms are always after.
