Silica Gel Crystals are ideal for drying flowers, and other natural materials.

Our Flower Drying Crystals are very fine 0.3 - 0.85mm, and blue indicator beads are included. The fine crystals help maintain the flowers' original shape during the preservation process. The blue silica gel beads turn pink when the beads have reached their full absorption capacity, which lets you know when they need to be reactivated! 

Drying time for most flowers is 2-7 days.
A microwave can be used to speed up the drying process if necessary.


  • 0.3 - 0.85mm in size
  • Blue moisture indicator beads included
  • Inert and non-toxic
  • Odourless and non-corrosive
  • Remains dry when saturated with moisture
  • Reusable

Reactivation Process
When the blue silica beads turn pink, reactivate as per below :
Spread flower drying crystals out on a tray, and place in an oven at 115°C to 125°C for approximately 2-3 hours, or until beads turn blue again. Once the beads have been reactivated, remove from the oven, and allow to cool before handling or use.

Store in a sealed container. 
Shelf life of 18 months in original unopened container.


Using Silica Gel To Dry Flowers

Preserving flowers is a great way to keep your favourite bouquets around for longer. A popular method of preserving flowers is by drying them with silica gel crystals. Flower drying silica gel is a desiccant, which means it absorbs moisture from the air and helps dry out the flower petals without damaging them.

Flower Drying Crystals 1kg

Great amount of crystals for at home use.
I was worried I wouldn't have enough but the reusable bucket holds plenty enough to dry several flowers and leaves, etc. I might get a second bucket as a spare for when I need to dry a LOT of flowers at one time, or to rotate throughout the week with 2 on the go all the time.

Hi there,

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review for our Flower Drying Crystals 1kg. We are happy to hear that the amount of crystals provided is sufficient for your at-home use and that the reusable bucket is convenient for drying multiple flowers and leaves.
Getting a second bucket as a spare is a great idea for larger projects or for rotating throughout the week.

Thank you for your support and happy drying!

Best regards,
Customer Service Team
