The investigation was done at the Universidad Autónoma Chapingo, with the purpose to find a treatment (mixtures of sand and borax) that permit an effective dried in rose, gerbera and carnation flowers, as well as, to determine the best time of drying in each one of the thern, to preserve the features of color, shape, texture and appearance. The evaluated variables were: % of loss of dampness, % of spotty, abscission, appearance, texture and shape. It was found that the desiccate mixtures have different effect on each specie, because of the own characteristics of their desiccate mixture, plant material and the environmental conditions. The results indicate that in rose and carnation, the river sand and high borax proportions in the desiccate mixture with 15 and 20 days from drying had favorable effects. On the other hand, gerbera with sea sand and low borax proportions in combination whit 10 and 15 days from drying were favorable for the dehydration, however not the results were completely satisfactory.
