Have you tried... a flower shop?
Just a thought.

I sort of did but I am looking for fake one so it will last longer. Though there will be some better design one with thin stem and easier to hide.

Any dollar store has fake flowers
but if you want a better selection go to AC more or Michaels or any craft shop they have a ton of options

You can buy the silk ones but you need to take them apart and remake them taking out all the hard plastic. Not a hard job but takes a knack and some time.

If you want to try a feather flower made for magic purposes by some expert craftsman. Contact Richard Hughes, Minus Magic, or Abbott's Magic Co. to make you one. I believe all make a single flower version. If you want to conceal it in your hands, then you may inquire if they can make such a small flower as most are larger then your hands.

Rocco the magician sells his flower he uses in his manipulation act.

What exactly are you trying to do with the flower? (have it appear, float it, comedy, etc). Are you planning to do the routine on stage or close-up? Would you like it to come from your sleeve? What is your maximum budget? The reason I ask those questions is because there are many type of flowers you can purchase. By answering my questions will help narrow it down.

Just a simple one. for the stage manipulation. Was watching Lukas Artist and he use some of the flower in his routine card manipulation.
I need to have it appear after I drop the cards that I produce.
I would like to keep it cheap cause I am not really a professional. Just for the fun of doing the magic.

Thank you guys for all the suggestions. I'll look into them.

You do not want to do manipulation with a feather flower. They will not hold up. They are fine for production but not manipulation.

You might want to try Flower Power: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S12916 But it must be used as an opener.

Gchen99, I recommend you to get Endless rose. It is a package where you get a dvd explaining a small routine, and then cople of flowers, 4-8, I don't remember. those flowers are easy to conceal.

I don't have the Artist videos yet, still saving my money for them, so I have no idea how it would work. I can tell you they have an appearing flower (Carnation) and an Appearing Rose on the market. It looks great when it is tossed up in the air and an a full long stem rose appears as you catch it.

Strange you spend $100 on a DVD and do not want to spend $20 for a rose, that just caught my reasoning as unusual thinking. With that in mind just go to a hobby store and get an imitation flower that you like the looks of and work with it.

There is not much on Flower magic in print or on DVD, I think all the selections from magic resources have been mentioned of the flowers available.

There is a small magic shop in New Jersey; they have downloads (booklets) re converting artificial flowers to spring flowers. Many of them are extremely lifelike.
'Would appreciate if anyone here has the name and address of the company. I had it but lost the reference.

Lol I was really into card manipulation and kind of want to learn the ball too.
The one he use in the routine is just pretty simple flower with very skinny stem.

I don't mind spending 20 for the flower but not sure if it suits my need. (ok, I am kind of cheap too I admit it lol)

You can make your own flower! Origami! Just make the flower from strong paper/silk and then make a stem.

For those interested in spring flowers, I locate4d the link re the conversion of plastic and silk flowers to spring-type flowers.
magicnook.com is the reference. They have downloadable e-books, one in particular, FLOWERS THAT BLOOM WITH A SPRING.
Hope this helps.
