There is a process where you can soak plant leaves in a non-toxic preservative which allows them to retain their fresh appearance long after the plant stops drawing nutrients from soil. Preserving Plants. They look and feel as fresh as a live one. Maybe you have your grandmothers favorite plant and you aren't good with plants, thru this process you can preserve it just the way it is. I know it is being done - saw it on TV - have searched the Web, encyclopedias, can't find info or chemical solution for this process. Can you help me - or point me in the right direction. Thanks!!!
