Once you bring your living tree home, an acclimation period of about a week in a garage or other cool indoor spot helps make the transition from outdoors to indoors less hard on the plant.
Your potted Christmas tree will appreciate being placed near a window. These guys need plenty of light, and although the amount they can get indoors will never be entirely adequate, at least it’ll be better for the tree than being stuck in the dark for weeks on end.
If your home has any chilly or drafty corners, that would be great, but otherwise, just try to keep your tree away from heaters and fireplaces.
Don’t overdo it, because your tree has gone through a lot lately and its roots may be damaged from fitting them into the pot. Wet soil can lead to rot! Instead, keep the soil lightly moist.
To ensure their health and survival, potted Christmas trees should be kept indoors for no more than two weeks. These living trees can’t tolerate the warm and dry conditions of our homes for too long, and are happiest in a cool, sheltered spot outside.
