Here are five tips to help keep yours fresh as long as possible.
- Make an inch long slit in the bottom of each branch and then tap the ends of the branches with a hammer. This allows water to be absorbed more easily and will extend the life of your branches.
- Soak the ends of the branches in lukewarm water to wash off excess bark and allow the plant to acclimate to its new environment.
- Add a drop of bleach in the water to keep the water from clouding and from smelling.
- Change water daily.
