If you are looking for a way to brighten up your home or office with some beautiful blooms, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of watering, pruning and replacing them every few days, then preserved flowers might be the perfect solution for you.

Preserved flowers are real flowers that have undergone a special process that removes their moisture and replaces it with a natural substance that preserves their shape, color and texture. Unlike fresh or dried flowers, preserved flowers can last for months or even years without wilting, fading or losing their fragrance. Preserved flower bouquet arranged with other preserved flower fillers looks exceedingly real at first glance. That is perhaps why preserved flower bouquets are fast becoming a comparable alternative to fresh flower bouquet.  That explains why preserved flowers in Singapore are growing in popularity.

Preserved flowers are also eco-friendly, as they reduce waste and carbon footprint by using less water, energy and transportation than fresh flowers. They are also low-maintenance, as they don’t need any soil, sunlight or fertilizer to thrive.

However, this doesn’t mean that preserved flowers don’t need any care at all. To understand how best to care for your preserved flowers, it is good to know how they are made and what makes.

The Process of Flower Preservation

There are different methods of preserving flowers, but the most common one is using a chemical preservative. This is how it works:

  • Fresh flowers are cut when they are at the peak of their bloom (where they are the most beautiful).
  • Special non-toxic and non-corrosive chemicals are used to draw out the water content along with proteins, sugar and pigments from the plant cells.
  • The flowers undergo a rehydration process by being placed in an organic mixture made with glycerine and other plant elements. This mixture replaces the sap and gives shape to the flowers.
  • The eco-certified chemical solution gradually rises through the stem until it completely substitutes the sap and preserves the flower.
  • The flowers can also be introduced to different pigments and essential oils to give them smells and colors.

This process can take from a few days to several weeks depending on the type and size of the flower. Not all flowers can withstand this treatment, so only the strongest species such as roses, hydrangeas, carnations etc., are used. And each flower is carefully selected and cut only at the peak of their bloom.

Caring For Your Preserved Flowers

To keep or to ‘preserve’ them as durable and attractive as just they were out from where they are made and to keep them looking their best and extend their lifespan, there are some simple tips that you should follow. Here are some of them:

  • Keep them away from direct sunlight, heat and humidity. Exposure to these elements can cause the colours of preserved flowers to fade or change over time. It can also make them more prone to mould and bacteria growth. Therefore, it is best to place your preserved flower bouquet or arrangement in a cool and dry place away from windows, heaters and air conditioners.
  • Avoid touching, spraying or watering them. Preserved flowers are delicate and fragile, so touching them too often can damage their petals or stems. Spraying or watering them can also ruin their preservation process and cause them to rot. If you want to clean your preserved flowers gently remove dust with a soft brush or hair dryer on low heat.
  • Store them in a cool and dry place when not in use. If you are not planning to display your preserved flowers for a while, it is advisable to store them in a sealed container such as a box or a bag with silica gel packets inside. Silica gel are widely available and they are used for their ability to absorb and retain water vapour which can prevent damage or mould occurring over time in some products. This will prevent moisture from entering and affecting your preserved flowers. You can also wrap them in tissue paper or bubble wrap to protect them from dust and insects.
  • Enjoy them for as long as possible. Preserved flowers can last for up to several years if properly cared for. However, they will eventually deteriorate due to natural aging processes such as oxidation and decomposition. Therefore, it is important to enjoy your preserved flowers while they still look fresh and vibrant.

Preserved flowers are a beautiful way to keep your special memories alive for a long time. There are different ways to display them depending on your preference and style. Here are some ideas based on the search results:

  • You can frame them and hang them on a wall for a stunning and artistic look.
  • You can use them as a centrepiece on a table with a flower in resin or a glass dome for an elegant and sophisticated touch.
  • You can place them as an accent piece on a nightstand or a shelf with a vase or a box for a simple and cosy feel.
  • You can store them in an enclosed glass terrarium or an acrylic box for a modern and creative flair.
