I am starting to dry flowers. I may take a Rebecca soper pitcher too. Anyone know the flower from the video ? I bought the press that way with the unknown flower inside. The yellow ones (Forsythia) i put myself today.

Don't know if your still looking to identify the first flower in your press, but it looks like a fuchsia..one of the big doubles ... If you have a still photo may be id a little better ..

I like drying flowers! I have a small flower press as well with a couple of P. 'Tina' flowers in it. :) Would love to make a collage or something of Pinguicula flowers at some point.

That's really cool, never thought to use CP flowers.
You could use dainty little urticularia flowers!
