After the guests are gone, some of us may not care about the condition of the plants they came with. We just leave them in a deplorable condition, making them look as if they were from the previous holiday.

This should not be the case. You could take some extra measures to make sure that the plants your friends brought as gifts stay alive, and on their next visit, they won’t be disappointed in you. Here are a few tips on how to take care of all your holiday plants.


These plants our guests bring us were not picked off the road, they were bought. This means that if they spent their hard earned cash on them, we should try and make them last. The best way to prevent these plants from withering is to water them on a pretty regular schedule. This leaves them lively, soft and beautiful to look at. Keeping the soil moist and not wet is advisable. Sprinkle a small amount of water everyday and leave them to thrive.

Exposure to Sunlight

Holiday plants and flowers need sunlight in order to thrive. This will make them last for a long period of time. For instance, a Christmas pepper plant lasts for about three months when exposed to enough sunlight. Do not expose your plants to direct sunlight, but rather incline them at an angle in relation to the sun.


In order to preserve the beauty and enhance the growth of your holiday flowers, it’s good to trim them. Do not just trim them using the traditional method though but rather using the specified tools. This will make them bloom and admirable to look at within a short period of time.
