This is probably a dumb question, but why are you supposed to dry flowers e.g. roses upside down?
I took a course at my local college making flowers and was taught to dry them upside down. I always do but just wondered why you have to do this.
Can you dry them upright in a dry oasis?

Upside down so the petals stay upright and don't collapse into a flat mess before they set up.

You can dry your flowers however you like. Some people stuff a little tissue or cotton under each petal while drying upright.
