Glycerin Flower & Foliage Preservative - 32oz.
Angle cut fresh cut flower stems, and crush woody stems for best absorption. (Past prime plant material does not absorb well.)
Stand stems in solution for approx. 2 wks in dry, dim lit, aerated room.
As moisture evaporates, glycerin is absorbed, leaving supple flower heads and deeper colors.
To preserve leaves, fully submerse in flat tray for approx 2 weeks. For best results experiment with variety of plant material and have fun doing it! Past prime foliage will become supple when treated this way.
