This high grass Adapts to all types of soil but it grows better in fresh and deep soils. It is recommended to plant it either in the spring (February to May) or in autumn (September to December) in a temperature between thirteen and eighteen degrees. Pampa grass favors direct exposure to the sun, however it supports temperatures up to less fifteen degrees. 

So prefer the places exposed to the sun to those hidden. Because it has an invasive development in supermarkets, it needs fertile soil in order to draw all the necessary elements without depleting the soil. But remember that it can also develop in dry soil. Given its development capacity, plant in the way of a shrub so that it does not fold. Always remember to put gloves before handling it because its leaves can cause slight cuts.

• Cultivate and maintain your grass

Pampa grass does not require daily maintenance. If you need to cultivate a outdoor plant without worrying about maintenance time, this is the ideal grass for you.

Being an invasive plant, to prevent it from invading your garden, you must do this: 

  • In the cold period, cut your plant as short as possible when it has dried and always remember mullying your foot using dried leaves; 
  • During heat, you don't need to mulch; You can just cut your plant 0.5m from the ground and cut all the ears before they go up in seeds. 

After the winter season, remove all the dry stems, this will be used to clean the foot of the plant. If you notice that the feathers of your plant are too large, you can reduce them by cutting them at the level you want. In the spring season, fold the tuft completely on the ground to allow young shoots to grow. Recall that the pampe grass does not require daily watering; Except in the event of an extreme prolonged drought. An important note not to be forgotten: always put gloves because the leaves can be very sharp.
