How to grow Pampas Grass
If you want to grow and dry your own Pampas grass, you can simply buy the plant at a garden center. Buying dried Pampas grass online can be very pricy, so drying your own is a great alternative. Also, since Pampas grass is an evergreen plant and blooms for several months, this will also be an upgrade for your backyard or balcony. Pampas grass looks good all year round. Simply plant it in your backyard or in a bucket to put it on your balcony. Around September or October, you can cut off the fluffy grass and dry it. I recommend drying it upside down so the pampas pom pom’s keep their nice shape. After one week, you can spray the grass with some hairspray so it stays in shape. Once dried and sprayed, you can get creative. I usually cut the grass a little shorter and put it in a vase. It looks so simple and fluffy, I want to touch it everytime I walk by it.
Pampas grass decor has a super free-spirited and bohemian vibe. Even though it is very simple, it is a true statement piece in your home, especially in a big vase. Here are some inspirations and ideas to decorate with pampas grass.
