Full Answer

Silica gel is an effective medium for preserving floral arrangements. A plastic container is filled approximately halfway full with the gel. The corsage is then placed inside and covered with more gel. Once the lid has been put back on, the container must be left alone 1 to 3 weeks in an area that is dry and warm. The corsage may then be removed and any extra gel can be shaken off.

    How do you preserve a rose?

    A:

    Roses can be preserved by drying, freeze-drying, coating them in silica or glycerine, and boiling. To dry a rose, hang it upside down before the petals begin to wilt and fall off. For a rose that has already started wilting, place the stem in boiling water for 30 seconds, and then cut the stem before placing it in cool water.
