I wrap mine in a wet paper towel, then silver foil, then put it in the fridge.
This. Works every year. Even with the garbage Israeli ones.
I'm not who you think I am.

How do you fit your whol lulav into the fridge?
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

My aravos and hadasim are in a holder. So I slide that off and wrap that up.

IME if Arovos are surrounded by many (36) Haddasim and put back into the plastic Lulav bag, it will keep everything airtight enough so that they stay fresh enough until Hoshana Rabba.

Same and I always wonder why this isn't the practice of the masses
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

So tie the holder to the lulav with a knot
Can you slip them apart and back together or not?

Untie the knot, slide off the holder
