How to take care of your Christmas tree?

Watering

Make sure your plant always has water and its roots are soaked at all times. The most important thing in keeping any tree, plant or green herb fresh, and the greenery alive is to water the plants regularly.

Stop! There is something more to say.

Will simply watering the Christmas plant let it be fresh and alive over a period of time?

Answer is no!

We have to make the tree regain the moistness it has lost. So, for the said purpose it is must to water the plant with warm water. The temperate water will seep into the roots making them turgid and fresh again. With warm water the dehydrated thirsty roots will get back their dampness. The same humidity of warm water will flow through the xylem. The xylem will transport the same warmth and dampness to the woody parts of the plant and leaves.

The Christmas plant needs a lot of water in the initial weeks. For the first two or two and a half weeks the tree will need the fresh water even for three times a day. This is the time when the tree will drink plenty of water to quench its dehydration. Make sure the tree does not get dry so always keep it hydrated.
