How to Care for Cut Bittersweet
Certified GKH Gardening Expert
You can place the Bittersweet in a water container in a cool location. The berries will start to open as the plant dries.
This method will likely make using the stems for arrangements easier.
You can also hang the Bittersweet to dry, but they will open and become more brittle.
