Silica Crystals for Flowers, flower drying crystals can be more efficient as it absorbs moisture from the plant material with less discoloration and fading than hang drying or pressing. It enables one to easily dry flowers within a matter of a few days or even minutes, and in doing so the shape and color of the flowers are maintained during the drying process.

How to do.
Step 1: Lay a layer of silica gel on the bottom of the airtight container. Then process the flowers, remove the bad petals by hand, cut off the long branches, and reserve 3-5cm of flower branches.
Step 2: Lay the trimmed flowers on top of silica gel for drying flowers.
Step 3: Slowly pour the remaining silica gel onto the surrounding area with a small cup. First, cover the flower core and carefully fill in each petal, taking care not to make the flower out of shape.
Step 4: When the flowers are completely covered, seal the container and leave it in a dry place for 3-7 days. ( Pay attention to the degree of dryness of the flowers and increase or decrease the drying time as appropriate. )
Reuse: Silica crystals can be reused a couple of times until it loses its moisture absorption capability completely. This could vary between 3-6 use cycles based on the ambient conditions and the kind of plant materials being dried. Keep Silica gel in the sunlight for 6 hours in a dry, non-humid climate, and it’s ready to reuse.
