My independant variable was food dye. My dependant variable was Carnations.
Why do flowers change color in food coloring? Absorption of water happens through the xylem and these are tissues present as thin tubes inside the stem. Water is carried to other parts of the plant including flowers through the Xylem. Water travels to the xylem when the molecules in the xylem and the water molecules get attracted.
This fun home or school experiment shows your child how water flows through a flower from stem to petals, changing the color of carnations. If you've ever had cut flowers in a vase around the house, your child might have observed the water levels dropping.Hypothesis Variables I then put two tablespoons of food dye into each cup and stirred them. Then, I used a knife and cut the carnation stems where each carnation was roughly a foot long and had a fresh cut stem. Difficulties I started out by filling three solo cups halfway with.Color changing flower science is a wonderfully simple science and STEM experiment you can do any time of the year. Also great for both the Spring season and Valentine's Day! Fun kitchen science that is super easy to set up and is perfect for home or classroom science. We love science activities for all seasons!

White carnations. Food coloring. Vases or clear cups. Sharp knife or scissors. Instructions. Step 1: Add 10 drops of food coloring into a small vase. Step 2: Fill with water. Add more drops if necessary to achieve a darker color. Step 3: Cut each stem of your carnations on an angle and place inside a vase. Step 4: Wait and watch!Read More
How the colour changing flowers experiment works. The flowers are drinking the coloured water from the vase. Plants take up water through roots and, in this experiment, through their stalks using tubes called xylem. The water passes up through the stalk to the top of the plant, and into the petals.Read More
Color Changing Flowers Experiment Hypothesis. On immersing the stems of white flowers in food coloring solutions, the petals will be seen to change their color. Supplies. 5 white flowers with long stems without any leaves (carnations, daisies, roses or chrysanthemums work well) Water.Read More
I hope I'm not the only one out there who winds up responsible for planning her own mother's day gifts every year!

They reminded me of how much I used to love dyeing flowers with food coloring when I was kid--there's just something so magical about watching the color.Read More
Research: According to (list sources here) a plant stem has tubes which carry water and food to the plant, etc. Hypothesis: If a flower is put in colored water, then the color of the water will show when it's drawn into the petals of the flower. A flower in clear water will have no change in color.Read More
