Pressed Plant

Here are my pressed plants. To create my press I used news paper like material on both sides with also lined paper. For weight I used numerous books.


  1. Great job on your plants Samantha, these turned out nice. It is good to include the author of the scientific names as well for the labels. So for black spruce it would be Picea mariana (Mill.) Britton, Sterns & Poggenburg The author really ties together the name and what the author intended the meaning to be. There are several synonyms for black spruce, including Pinus mariana (Mill.) Du Roi, so adding the authors provides a little more information than just the name.
