Bouquet Care: Holiday Blooms at Their Best

With proper care, you Christmas bouquet will last longer. Here are a few tips to get the most life out of your fresh bouquet. 

  • Trim the stems. When you first receive your bouquet, trim the stems at a 45-degree angle with a sharp knife or shears. This will help them absorb water more easily.
  • Remove any dead or dying leaves or flowers. This will help to keep the rest of the bouquet healthy and looking its best.
  • Place the bouquet in a clean vase with fresh water. The water should cover at least two-thirds of the stems.
  • Add flower food to the water. Flower food will help your bouquet last longer.
  • Place the bouquet in a cool, well-lit spot away from direct sunlight and drafts.
  • Change the water every day or two, and trim the stems as needed.

Blooming Bright: The Beauty of the Christmas Cactus

The Christmas cacti were originally forest cacti, growing as epiphytes in the Organ Mountains north of Rio de Janeiro in southeast Brazil. Christmas cacti are just one variety included in the holiday cacti; there are also Thanksgiving and Easter cacti. On Christmas cacti, you will find flattened leaves with rounded teeth as opposed to the Thanksgiving cacti, that have pointed teeth. With Easter cacti, we find that they have pointed teeth with fibrous hairs at the leaf joints. 

Each holiday cacti will bloom close to the holiday suggested in its name. When the Christmas cactus is in bloom, keep it in bright, indirect light and mild temperatures. It is also essential to keep it away from heaters and fireplaces to avoid drying them out. When watering, be sure to let the soil dry between each watering. However, it is essential not to let it dry too much while in bloom, or it may drop its flower buds.

Thriving Christmas Cacti: Care Tips for the Holidays and Beyond

Help your Christmas Cactus thrive all year long!  

  • Add fertilizer to the soil once a month until November.
  • Water regularly, and avoid overwatering.
  • Increase the humidity by misting or placing on a pebble tray filled with water.
  • Keep at a cool temperature. Most cacti prefer between 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit.

Festive Foliage: Celebrating Christmas with Holly

Christmas holly is a very versatile plant; the boughs of holly are often used in Christmas wreaths or garlands. Sprigs of holly add festive accents to Christmas Bouquets. The wood from the holly plant is often used for carving chess pieces because of its white color and density, and during the 1800s, the wood was also used to make spinning rods for Looms. Some American holly species have also been used to make tea.

At Calyx Flowers, we take great pride in offering a diverse selection of flowers and plants that capture the essence of the holidays. The right floral arrangements can transform your home into a festive wonderland, creating cherished memories with loved ones year after year.
