    Haha, my laptop is Asus too

    I have a vase of dead pitchers I filched from my field trip. Looks pretty nifty. I can't decide if I like them better brown and dried, or if I wanna try painting them.

    Why you no have a growlist? They are so gorgeous!

    Haha, painting them would be neat. I have a growlist, but I'm usually too lazy to update it... :P

    @Adnedarn: Awesome!!

    Lovely colour combos Elgecko. The white flowers, with the red roses, and the red & white Sarras! Perfect!

    @Mass: Yeah, they don't last all that long. :P

    They can be preserved for a long time using methods in a couple of ICPS articles. I can't remember but I think over a year. Nice looking arrangements for sure!

    I let my cut pitchers sit in about an inch of distilled water while they dry, in a high humidity area. They retain most of their color and shape that way. Simple and easy. Nice vase arrangement!
