We already talked about plant conservation methods such as spraying or immersion preservation. Today we are going to talk about the freeze-drying technique. This method is often equated or mistaken for the classic plant drying. Freeze-drying is a process invented in the early 20th century by french scientists. This conservation method is used for many […]

We explained the process of preservation by immersion in a previous article. For some plants, this process is not the most optimal and we then use preservation by immersion, which we present here. THE TECHNIQUE As with immersion preservation, spraying preservation is a technique for preserving previously dried plants. This process consists of spraying a glycerin-based […]

For several years we have witnessed the popularization of many fields: natural sciences, history, and even news. In addition to selling, it is sometimes a matter of making shortcuts suggesting that the subject is mastered. At SecondFlor, we decided to take the opposite view. We prefer to initiate the movement of knowledge so that no […]

We will present to you the mixed and future techniques known to date, in the fields of preservation and stabilization. MIXED TECHNIQUES We saw that there were techniques allowing dehydration, rehydration, absorption, coloration and sometimes all at the same time. Depending on the desired result and function of each plant, it is possible to use […]

It’s in the heart of Scandinavian landscapes that is harvested the reeinder moss. This lichen is the food of these animals, which are also omnipresent in this region. It is one of the best sellers of preservation but also one of the oldest preserved plants. THE PRODUCT In its natural state, lichen is a very dry and […]

In previous articles, we talked about stabilization processes with capillary stabilization and flower stabilization. However, there are other techniques that allow plants to be preserved, including preservation by immersion, which we will present here. TECHNIQUE Immersion preservation is a plant conservation technique mainly based on a dried plant that we rehydrate in a bath. As a […]

Stabilized flowers are mainly sold as flower heads. It comes from a technical reason : we do not use the same stabilization techniques for the head and the stem. The stem technique does not properly preserve the head : glycerine, too viscous, could not penetrate the flower. Similarly, using the head technique for the stem would […]
