When does pampas grass get fluff? 

Over the years pampas grass has become the must have décor for every home. and with such a wide variety of colours and sizes, there is no surprise why. Incorporating natural elements, like pampas grass, can evoke feelings of class and elegance within a living space. However, it could be argued that the key to unlocking the full beauty of this delightful plant lies in the art of fluffing its plumes. So, if you have ever wondered how to fluff your stems to get the best level of fluffiness out of them, you have come to the right place!


Firstly, it is very important to fluff up each stem when you take it out of the packaging, but ensure you do so carefully. A small amount of shedding is normal. Be sure you do not skip this step if you want to achieve the fluffiest plumes possible! 


Next, separate the fur with your fingers, opening it up gently. It is normal for the stems to shed a little during this step. We recommend you do this outside or have a hoover near! 

Finally, leave the stems in sunlight for 5 - 7 hours. If this is not possible, place them in a vase and leave for 24 - 48 hours. The pampas stems should get back to their normal form and become fluffier as time goes on. 


Do not water your pampas and try not to place them outside on a particularly windy day. The plumes are fragile and if a strong breeze comes, they could shed more than you want them to! 


Once these steps are taken. If your pampas is left in an undisturbed place, they should last for several years..
