Although it's not a technique
that's available to most of us - certainly
not to me - some years back I read an article about using vacuum
dessication for preserving all sorts of specimens, plant and otherwise,
with remarkable results.
I think I recall that they combined this with cold, so that the water
sublimed out of the specimen.
for a while, and maybe still, this was done with things like
mushrooms and strawberries and the results were...interesting.
I just remember seeing ancient preserved specimens, and they all had a
dismal fig-like brownness to them unless they were say, preserved like
upside down corsages in some dessicant, i forgot what. silica something,
large pieces of vegetable matter, I dunno. but it is worth a try,
