A lovely guess. :D All of your botanical paintings are nicely done.

When I collected plants for botanical mounting, I found that wrapping or laying them in damp paper towels kept them from curling up on me.

Thanks for the tip. :) I'll try that next time.

I just kept the stalk in water for this one but it wasn't enough...
