I am having trouble keeping flowers submerged in water, they keep floating. I have tried adding stones to the bottom of the vase and sticking the stem in the rocks, but the darn things keep floating to the top.
Any advise? Are ther any flowers out there that stay down better than others?

Tie a fishing weight to the flower with fishing line. Bury the weight in the stones.

I like that weight idea. But what if you don’t want anything in the bottom of the vases? Or do people always use rocks or other decorative items in the bottom?

Without stones in the bottom it is more labor intensive. You can put a drop of hot glue or water proof glue at the bottom of the vase, and set the fishing line in it. Let it dry completely and it should be clear so you really can’t see it. Then add your flowers to the fishing line and you are set to go.

You can also hide it by using beads. But I’m talking about the ones that have liquid in them and come in different colors. They remind me of sound silicon implants.

Why not attach the weight to the flower itself so it can float? Hide on the bottom of the flower somehow?
