how to care for cut bittersweet

Zone 7 - Pennsylvania | burnselaine added on October 13, 2015 | Answered

How do I care for cut bittersweet? Should it be in water? It is yellow and I want it to open for the orange color. I purchased cut bittersweet for decorating. It is yellow but I want it to open soon for a wedding. Do I place it in water or lay it around dry?

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.
