I’ve had tremendous luck with my submerged flowers using water beads. If you use them you could put a bit of water in it pending the style you want and your flowers would still stay perky.

I like them because they can be used to make different textures. If you don’t add water to them they almost look like flower vase stones but they are gel-like in texture so they adhere and move as you put items into them.

You can also pour water over them and pending the color makes them nearly invisible but still holds your items in place. If you used a color waterbead it would make the water that color (like food coloring or dye might)

For example.. my submerged flowers are 100% in water and normally they would try to float to the top. With the beads in place at the bottom they hold the stems down and you can’t see them if you use clear. I use purple so it almost makes a purple haze at the base of my glass. Sadly I don’t have pictures of mine at the moment.

Here is one half and half

Anywho. I’m a big fan of them I’m using both types in my wedding. Submerged water beads with wisteria that create a purple haze at the bottom and non submerged purple beads with LED’s under them for my tree style centerpieces. They are very inexpensive and cheap on Ebay, google them or from walmart. (Craft stores overprice them significantly)
