I’m impressed… I’ve just mounted my plants for my herbarium which is due next week and they look pretty good (hehe here’s to hoping the lecturer/markers think so too). It took me about 3 hours to mount 10 plants properly. You’d be surprised at how hard it is to mount the plants down. As their dry their pretty fragile, so gluing needed to be done carefully. Then some were slighly heavier/woody, so I had to tie them down with dental floss (i.e. sew them down)… but all’s good now. Strange thing though is quite a few of them still look green (well dark green), and they’ve been drying for well over 2 months now…. so hmm…
