What is pampas grass?
Pampas grass is an ornamental grass, which is very easy to look after. It is often used in interior decor, although if you have a garden, it will undoubtedly look just as great. The good news for anyone who wants to add this plant to their landscape is that is it is so easy to look after. The only thing you need to know is that when you plant it, it is important to provide it with enough space to grow. The other thing is that the grass usually reaches anywhere from 5 to 10 feet in width and height. So, like we said, space is a must have. It doesn’t require lots of water, so if you live somewhere with the occasional rainy day, you will be okay. If, however, you live somewhere extremely hot, where rain is a rarity, then it is a good idea to occasionally water the grass so as not to dry completely.

How to dry pampas grass?
Usually when it is used as a decor inside your house, the grass can be dried. How does that happen you might ask? Well, it is quite easy. Grab a small bunch of it, tie it together and hang it upside down from the ceiling in a cool, dry place. Leave there for about two weeks and you are all set. What’s more, you can spray it with hair spray, so as to stop shedding. Make sure you wear gloves and a shirt with sleeves when you are cutting the stems, because what many people may not know is that pampas grass is extremely sharp and can actually cut you.
