This procedure is performed in a closed room or chamber having a temperature of 22 degr.C and a humidity above 85%. These conditions favour the opening of the flower. The cut branches are then packed in carton boxes of appr. 3kg or in buckets, in which the bottom of the branches are immersed in a conservating solution.
