Strawflower
I'd brought bundles of strawflower flying back home but ask I remove the paper wrapped the leafs turn black and stem of the flowers don't look straight, all bend down. What should I do to make the stem stand straight?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. If your strawflowers are still drying, try hanging them upside down in a warm, dark place.

 

If the stems are already dried, there's not a lot you can do. You can try using a florist wire to help straighten them, but you'll want to be careful as the dried stems can be brittle.
