Caring for Holiday Flowers:

Provide bright, indirect light for the classic holiday plants below.


Water these plants when the soil at the top of the pot feels dry.

Amaryllis (note: provide water along the edge, not into the center, of the bulb)




Water when the top of the soil is still slightly damp. Don’t panic if the frosty ferns get droopy. They will perk up with additional water unless you’ve let them get completely dry. Plants that like a bit more water include:


Selaginella  or “Frosty Fern”

Paper white narcissus

Cypress trees

Cyclamen- also prefers a cool location


Watering frequency is determined by the temperature and humidity levels in your home. Misting can be helpful in dry home conditions. Plants will take up some water through their leaves. Avoid over watering succulent leaves- direct water to the base of the plant.


With proper care your flowering plants will last for months, providing life and color while the outdoor landscape is dormant.
