How to Care for Fresh Palms

Pull all bagged palms out of box

It is best to store all palms upright. Avoid stacking bags flat on top of each other if possible.

Do not break the bags open yet

Wait until you are ready to use or arrange them. If bags are opened prematurely it is best to reseal them with tape or clips until required.

Keep palms cool

Keep in 40-50 degree space if posssible! DO NOT FREEZE! If no refrigerated space available, keep
in well lit air conditioned space to prevent molding.

Check your order

Keep in mind entire order may not arrive on the same day. Please call early regarding any concerns so they can be addressed in a timely fashion.

Brown tips

Brown tips are a natural feature of almost all healthy palm leaves.

Brown tips don't indicate your palm is dried or drying.

Prior to arranging

Cut the stems at a 45 degree angle 1/8 of an inch above bottom end of stem. Place in ICE WATER for 1-3 hours. This will add luster to any dry appearing altar decorations. Leaves that come in tightly folded or ‘closed’ will open up when placed in ice water.

Keep water in arrangement vessel

This will keep palms lively up to and through your service.
