Dyed carnation

Today's experiment focused on plant biology! The kids put white carnations, daisies, and chrysanthemums in dyed water to better understand the phenomenon of capillary action within flowers (where water travels upward, against the force of gravity). After only an hour, the flowers started turning crazy colors! Also cool: if you split the stem and put each half of the stem into different colored water, the petals will become multicolored!
