However, gravity has an effect and significantly reduces the size of the flowers with the petals facing downwards. As the flowers dry, spread the petals manually from time to time to help them maintain shape.
- Put them to dry in a place away from direct light and that it has little humidity.
- You can use wire to hang the stems and secure it at the end of the stem with tape.

Once the stem is dry enough to support the weight of the flower, put it in a vase where the flowers will continue to dry.
- Varieties of plants that are not floral do not put them upside down, Leave them in a vase without water or put them sideways on a flat surface.
