When shopping for plants for the holiday season there are some tips for keeping them alive and around for a longer period of time. The Las Vegas RJ reported that there are certain plants and conditions that help prolong the life of a plant. Here is the summary of a few of those tips:

  • Avoid any plants displayed on cold pavements or in drafty locations.
  • You want the soil mix to feel slightly moist to touch, not bone dry or water-logged.
  • Inspect the plant for any signs of pest infestation, or poor growing practices.
  • Large gaps between leaves suggest the plant was held too long in inadequate light.

There are some 40 or so ideas on how to keep a plant healthy and living for as long as possible. There are tips on bringing them back next season as well.
