After removing your hellebore from the box, carefully unwrap your new plant friend. Shake off the excess dirt that might have escaped from the plant during shipping. Handle it’s foliage, and other living elements carefully! Discard any packaging elements.
To make caring for your plant a snap, we’ve kept her in her plastic pot liner instead of potting her directly into the decorative vase to make watering easier! To water, simply pull the plant out gently from your vase. We find it easiest to water our plants in the sink - place them into the basin, turn the faucet on low and let the water run into the soil until it begins to run through the drainage holes on the bottom. Let her continue to drain in the sink and then replace her back in the vase! Repeat this once a week!
If going the watering can route, your goal is a happy medium - not too dry and not too wet! We say aim to give her roughly a ½ cup once a week - but adjust if you see too much water at the bottom of your pot or if you have a warm and dry environment.

When it comes to finding your plant a home, choose an area that has lots of indirect sunlight. They love a good photosynthesis sesh, but are more sensitive while they are in their bloom cycle and can easily burn!
After her bloom cycle, move her outside if you live in a warm climate. Hellebore thrive outside! They love warm, shady weather and frequent drinks!
