I'm sure some of you are quite familiar with pampas grass. Some of you may be new to having pampas grass and might have questions about how to take care of this beautiful style of ornamental grass. The good news, pampas grass doesn't require much care!
Below are some care tips for caring for your Luxe B pampas grass:
1) These tips here would be our most important ones, especially if you want to keep your product for a long time. We recommend keeping your pieces out of direct sunlight. We also recommend keeping them away or in the vicinity of a bright direct light sources. The reason being is this can change the colouring of the plumes, it could also fade the colouring if they are a dyed style of pampas grass. It's important that you keep them away from direct light if you want to keep the pampas in the colouring that you received them in. Direct light will also dry out the product and make it look limp overtime. Environments with a lot of humidity or dried heat are not good for pampas. We recommend keeping them in a place that is neither damp nor dry. Do not keep your pampas next to the heat source such as a fireplace or candle. It is a dried item and could become flammable.
2) When receiving our larger pampas and some of our smaller dried grass, we recommend lightly hair-drying them. This will help puff the plumes up and make them look fuller. They may appear flat from being in transit when you receive them in the mail 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 a bit of time.
3) For most of our pampas pieces, we keep the stems longer so that you can cut the pampas stems 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.
4) A very common question we get here at Luxe B pampas grass is "should I hair spray my pampas?" We do see a lot of videos of people recommending to do this, but at Luxe B, 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 pampas adds a beautiful natural element to your space or special event. We look forward to seeing how you style our pieces!
