Does the elixir of eternal youth exist? This is the closest comparison which would enable us to explain what a preserved plant is.
The preservation technique allows the treated plant or flower to maintain its colour and beauty for a long time, both in appearance and to the touch.
Although the plant is not alive, the process allows us to enjoy a preserved rose, a bouquet of flowers or a plant inside the house with the same appearance as fresh flowers or plants. And they don’t need natural light, fertilisers, pruning, watering or water changes!
Floral art with preserved flowers allows us to create all kinds of original and beautiful floral compositions so that you can enjoy an exquisite floral arrangement, a tree or a plant for many years without needing to continually maintain or replace it.
What are preserved plants?
Floral and plant preservation is a technique which allows the plant to maintain its original appearance for a long time. Plants, flowers, and trees undergo a process whereby the natural sap is replaced with a special solution that allows the plant to maintain its suppleness. The end appearance of the plant is identical to the appearance of the live plant in its moment of greatest splendour and beauty.
How is the preservation process carried out?
The flowers or plants are cut at the moment in which they are most beautiful and attractive. Once cut, they are put into containers that have a liquid composition made up of glycerine, water, and stabilisers inside.
During the absorption process of the preserving iquid, the sap evaporates and is replaced by the preserving liquid.
When the stabilisation process is complete, the plants or flowers are left to dry in special chambers for several days.
After this time, the flowers or plants are carefully cleaned to remove any traces of dry or wilted leaves. The quality control process is carried out meticulously to guarantee the maximum beauty of the plant or flower.
The process is complete. The preserved plant is now ready to shine in all its splendour.
