How do you dry physalis for indoor decorations?

United Kingdom Gb

Lots of "lanterns" on the plant growing in a tub at my door.Some already lacy and some still with white flowers. All the stems are very bent and crooked.

On plant Physalis



The bent stems will either look 'weird ' or rubbish! You could wire the seed heads onto florists' wire before displaying them in a vase. Pick the heads on a dry day and put them in a vase somewhere warm to dry. I think if you hang them upside down to dry they will not keep their 'hanging' appearance.
