This kitchen experiment makes a colorful centerpiece and is a great way to facilitate discussions with children about how and why plants use water. It will be exciting for the entire family to observe.
You will need:
1 White Carnation Flower (a celery stalk with leaves attached will also work)
2 drinking glasses
Fill each cup with water. Add a different food color to each glass.
Carefully slice the stem about half way up so that it is still connected toward the top of the plant.
Place one side of the stem in one glass and the other side of the stem in the other glass.
Observe over the next day or two as the petals of the flower gradually absorb more and more color until you have a bold multi-colored flower.
