    Fresh clip stem ends so they can absorb water. Soak in cold water for about 15 min-1/2 hr dry thoroughly spray with cheap super hold hairspray unscented. keep greenery out of sun, heat drafts

    Try some floral tubes filled with water...u can usually find them at Walmart or Michaels. They are small so won’t be real obvious and can be easily concealed.

    Hope this helps a bit

    Hello, if you have cotton balls you could put them on the ends with rubber band and mist the daily. Thought I would try to give you a way to do it that you don't have to buy any thing. Merry Christmas.

    If you used it as a garland then use a water bottle to spray it each day. This will help keep it from drying out.
